Annual Awards Banquet

The Awards Banquet is held each year between November 15 and January 15 in a different location around the country, and hosted by a local MAFCA chapter. This gives the membership a chance to visit during the holiday season, review the year, announce and install the newly elected officers, and present awards for literary efforts, longevity, chapter website awards, and others.

The 2024 National Awards Banquet will be held in Utah.
