Event Details

FEC CONNECT isn't for everyone, it's for industry leaders – just like you. You'll be with people who are passionate, intelligent, engaged and striving to make a difference. By the end of the day, you'll have made connections, created relationships, and been given the opportunity to think differently. We bring together the local community of FEC owners/operators and AAMA member companies for a day of education and networking.
