Members belong to the Friends of Mineralogy either through one of its several regional chapters or as a national member.  Most of the chapters hold or co-sponsor annual symposia.

Listed chronologically below are symposia that should be of interest to many FM members. Non- FM symposia in North America will be listed as time permits. This webpage was created in Late September 2017. It will take some time to populate this page with all the meetings that have not yet happened.
