Each position is rotated annually at the end of the annual Florist's Convention held by MFA. Each board member is also tasked with a duty to help put on the annual florist's Convention each year.
NEW!Board member's registration fees for the annual Convention will be paid by the MFA, as passed at the 2012 annual Public Meeting.
