Regional Community Institute
In December 2005,  the Regional Community Institute of Northeast Florida, Inc. (RCINEF) was formed in response to a growing realization that Northeast Florida needed a broad-based organization that would initially have as its purpose to advance and promote the vision of regionalism, as it relates to the quality of Northeast Florida’s natural, man-made, economic and social environments.

In fulfilling this purpose the RCINEF initially has three core components:
