Broward County

The BSO Supervisory Association, I.U.P.A. Local 6006, is located at 900 South State Road 7, Plantation, Florida. Broward County is rich in history, not only for Southwest Florida, but for the United States and the world.  In 1915, the County was formed from parts of Dade and Palm Beach Counties. It gains its name from the infamous Florida Governor Napoleon Bonaparte Broward.  The Southwest Florida Native Americans inhabited the area until it was settled by the Spanish and then the British.  The British returned the area back to Spain after the American Revolution.  In 1821, the U.S. obtained Florida from the Spanish and the area’s history began to come alive, making it the thriving sunny area that it is today.


The County consists of cities such as Ft. Lauderdale, Pembroke Pines, Wilton Manor, and Hollywood.  Its celebrated beaches are world class.  The County seat is located in Ft. Lauderdale and it is the second largest populated County in the State of Florida.  The members of I.U.P.A. Local 6006 invite the world to visit the County that they call home.
