THE 2017 CFMS-AFMS SHOWPlease mark your calendar for June 9-11, 2017 for the nationwide CFMS-AFMS Show and Convention. The VGMS (Ventura Gem & Mineral Society) is a member of the CFMS (California Federation of Mineralogical Societies), which in turn is one of 7 regions of the AFMS (American Federation of Mineralogical Societies). Each year the CFMS holds a Show and Convention somewhere in California, and likewise, each year the AFMS joins with one of the 7 regions for its annual show. Hence, every 7 years it lands in California. It's a special event to host the CFMS show, and even more special to host for the joint CFMS-AFMS show.

We held a contest for theme and logo design. Congratulations to Jim Brace-Thompson for the theme, and Brett Bednorz for the logo!
