T e Fir r c e November 2011 President’s Message


Halloween has passed and Thanksgiving is right around the cor- ner. Florida Fall Fairs are coming to an end, while winter and Spring Fairs are in full steam ahead mode planning for their Fairs.


I hope every one has made their arrangements for the IAFE Con- vention and we look forward to seeing every one there. Both IAFE and the Florida Federation have so much to offer their members so please take advantage of the resources.


Dan West and his Committee are hard at work preparing for the 2012 Annual Convention and workshops, I am sure it will be one not to miss. Once again we will have IAFE’s Zone II joining us bringing their knowledge and expertise. Mark your calendar May 17-19 in St. Augustine at the Renaissance Resort at World Golf Village.


I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible this year at your Fairs, and if I or any of your Federation board members can be of assistance feel free to call.


Happy Holidays to all, CE Happy Norris, CFE, President,
