Annual Convention

2021 EFMLS Convention and Mineral Show.
Hosted by the Gem & Mineral Society of Syracuse
– Scheduled for July 9-12, 2021 – Syracuse, NY

The Eastern Federation conducts their Annual Convention each year in concert with a Regional Show sponsored by an Affiliate Member Society. As many members as possible of Member Societies are encouraged to attend as there are individuals and programs available to help their local organizations with their local business. The weekend events include one or more field trips and a variety of awards are presented at the Saturday Evening Banquet and Editor’s (BEAC) & Website Contest Breakfast. There is also great camaraderie during the event and the shows are always excellent.
