FEI Group kicks off 2022 national conference

Marco Island, Fla.—FCNews is at Marco Island, Fla., for the FEI Group’s national conference. The event kicked off Wednesday evening with an opening speech by Graham Howerton, president of the FEI Group, who welcomed members, supplier partners and guests. During his speech, Howerton paid tribute to the JW Marriott Marco Island staff who endured hardship after Hurricane Ian hit the area four weeks ago, closing the facility for nearly two weeks and disrupting many lives. The employees entered the conference room to a standing ovation.

The FEI Group’s National Conference is more than just educational seminars and networking. The group also wants to give back. With that in mind, the group held the “No Child Hungry Give Back Challenge,” where dozens of FEI members worked on an assembly line to make oatmeal and package it in boxes for distribution the next day to a local food bank. The meals come during a particularly difficult time for families in southwest Florida who were displaced by Hurricane Ian last month.
