Annual Convention Update


Dear Federation Members and Friends,

We hope this message finds you healthy and happy! I know many of us are encouraged by the progress made with the vaccines and eager to put the pandemic behind us. However, the CDC is still recommending avoiding large gatherings. Since our convention is so close in nature, it is challenging to put on a quality convention while following the protocols set in place by the CDC, hotel, and local jurisdiction. With that being said, we have decided to reschedule this year’s Midwest Federation convention to Summer of 2022.

We will continue to award scholarships this year. Eleven extraordinary students will be receiving a $2,000 scholarship for the 2021-22 school year. Keep an eye out on our social media this summer to learn more about their success stories and plans for the future!

I know I can speak on behalf of all our Federation members that we are ecstatic and eager for us all to be together again. We hope to see you in St. Louis, Missouri, next year to make up for lost time and celebrate the way we deserve under the Gateway Arch!
