FNGLA's Annual Convention is a time each year for FNGLA members and industry friends to celebrate the past year of success while welcoming FNGLA's new leadership taking office. It is also the venue for FNGLA's Annual Meeting and the platform for presenting FNGLA's Industry Award Winners.
The event is traditionally held at a venue close to the President's hometown.
For 2019, FNGLA's Annual Convention will be held at the Tampa Marriott Waterside hotel in Tampa, Florida - President Will Womack's neck of the woods.
