Each fall, FAESS holds its annual business meeting at a different location in Florida. Typically these meetings are held either on a Friday or Saturday, with a field trip before or after the meeting to observe nearby soils and landscapes.

Topics discussed generally include planning for the upcoming Hydric Soils Workshop, developments in legislation that may affect members, annual budgets and finances, committee reports, and in-general anything that affects FAESS or its members.

On even years we hold officer elections. These individuals serve as the FAESS Executive Council and steer most FAESS activities throughout the year. For more information about FAESS offices or related matters, consult the Constitution and Bylaws
