The annual FMEA Professional Development Conference is held early in January on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the Tampa Convention Center. Some of the most important and enjoyable meetings of the year are held at this time, including the annual meeting of FMEA. All component and affiliate organizations of FMEA conduct their own meetings, but also meet together to solve common problems. Joint concerts by the All-State student performing groups are presented on the closing days.
The next FMEA Professional Development Conference / All-State dates are January 8-11, 2020, in Tampa. For more information, including future conference dates, visit www.fmea.org.
