The Flavor and Extract Manufacturers Association (FEMA) will celebrate its 100th anniversary at its Annual Convention being held May 3-6, 2009 at the Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach, Florida. In recognition of this milestone, the organization has prepared some special celebrations including a black tie centennial gala dinner on Tuesday, May 5, and some surprises during the Monday, May 4 general session. To add a sense of history and prestige to the occasion, FEMA is inviting past presidents, former members, and other members of the flavor and extract community to join in the celebration. In addition, the book FEMA: A Century of Great Taste, commemorating the first 100 years of FEMA’s history, will be distributed.
FEMA has created a program to look at the challenges and opportunities facing the future of the flavoring industry.
FEMA has made some additional changes elsewhere in the convention program. In a break from the past, and in response to members’ feedback, the organization has scheduled two full days of committee meetings to enable members to attend more meetings and still have time for business networking with colleagues. FEMA’s committees will celebrate their history as well as discuss future opportunities and prospects for each committee’s issues. A complete and detailed coverage of each of the sessions will be included in FEMA’s Annual Convention brochure and on the FEMA Web site.
