Annual Convention

EFMLS 2020 Convention (Rescheduled)
Hickory, NC – October 23-25, 2020

Due to COVID-19, the originally planned Annual Convention and Regional Show in March 2020, has been rescheduled to October 2020.

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