FNGLA’s annual convention is June 23-24 in Fort Lauderdale

The Florida Nursery, Growers & Landscape Association’s 2017 annual convention will take place June 23-24 at the B Resort in Fort Lauderdale, FL. It is also the venue for FNGLA’s annual business meeting and the platform for recognizing the association’s outstanding volunteers and presenting its industry award winners.

Each year the convention is a time for FNGLA members, family and friends to celebrate the past year’s accomplishments and to welcome the association’s new leadership taking office. Traditionally held at a locale close to the president’s hometown, the convention will honor Rob Shoelson’s year as FNGLA president and welcome Ed Bravo as its new incoming president. The opening event on Friday evening, June 23, will be a Beach Party reception on the Fort Lauderdale beach.

Saturday morning’s program starts with a continental breakfast followed by FNGLA’s annual business meeting. The President’s Gala on Saturday evening will bring the convention to a close as the Big Shoes are passed from Rob Shoelson to Ed Bravo. For more information, visit
