Annual Assemblage in April in Chicago!
This year we are observing our 35th Anniversary, and our annual Assemblage (convention) will celebrate with a lavish, exciting schedule in Chicago. The dates are April 25-30, 2017. Fan viewings have been arranged at three major Chicago museums. There will be four lectures, on topics ranging from ivory to lace to Mrs. Bertha Palmer. Two tours are planned to help explore the Chicago area. Our FANA Day will include the Annual General Meeting, the Members’ Fan Sale, Members’ Fan Auction, Fan (Tai) Chi gathering, and the fabulous Saturday Evening Banquet.
