FANA holds an annual convention in April or May at different host cities. The annual convention is called The Assemblage.Past meetings have been held in many cities on the east and west coasts and in between, the most recent being San Antonio, Texas; Bloomington-Minneapolis, Minnesota; Sarasota-Bradenton, Florida and Chicago, Illinois.
This year we are observing our 35th Anniversary. We just finished a lavish, exciting Assemblage in Chicago.The next Assemblage will take place in San Diego, California, April 25-29, 2018. Planning of details is just getting underway. For information please contact Sandy Lawrence at firstname.lastname@example.org or 510-223- 5726.
No matter where we meet, the Assemblage is always a happy time of chatting with new and old friends, seeing beautiful fans, hearing excellent speakers on special fan topics, and enjoying the opportunity to buy and sell fans for ourselves.
Regional Meetings: Members are encouraged to take the initiative in outreach to other fan collectors and prospective members. The East Bay Fan Guild is active in California.
