The Federation conducts their Annual Convention each year in concert with a Mineral Show sponsored by a Member Organization. Federation business conducted at the Convention Annual Meeting is open to all members of Federation Member Organizations in good standing. Each Organization may be represented with two voting members (Delegates) by attending the Annual Meeting. As many members of Member Organizations should attend as possible as there are individuals and programs available to help their Organizations. The weekend events include one or more field trips and a variety of awards are presented at the Banquet and Editor’s Breakfast (BEAC). There is also great camaraderie during the event and the shows are always excellent.
