2023 Annual Convention

Tempe  ArizonaTEMPE, ARIZONA
OCTOBER 12 - 15

I look forward to welcoming all of our members, and friends to the 2023 FMCA Annual Convention to be held in October at The Embassy Suites Hotel-Tempe in Tempe, Arizona. For hotel reservations, please call the Hotel reservation directly at 800-774-1500, and be sure to identify yourself as part of the FMCA group use Group Code 900. The FMCA Convention rate (single or double occupancy) is $169.00 plus tax per-night. Since the $169.00 room rate is available for three days before and after the convention, you may want to spend some extra time to see the sights in and around Tempe or other parts of Arizona. Our room block will expire at midnight on September 15, 2023, so don’t delay in making your room and travel reservations. The board voted to lower the registration fee to only $200.00 per person this year and any new member attending it is $100.00 per person for their first convention.

The FMCA welcome and check-in table will be in the hotel lobby Thursday afternoon from 1 to 5 pm and in the Hospitality room around 8:30pm. When you check-in you will be given a packet of information on the area with dining and shopping information, along with your name badges, and itinerary of the convention as to times of functions, and tour information

We will be making stops on our Friday tours first to the Musical Instrument Museum where we will have a lunch before departing to the famous Hall of Flame Firefighting Museum headed by our co-host and member there Mr. Chuck Montgomery, included in our ticket price will be a one year membership in the Hall which lets you go there at any time after our convention.

If you have questions about any of the plans, feel free to call me at 210-410-9468 cell or email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
