New This Year:
We are looking forward to a different and exciting Convention this year and hope you will join us.  Our host leagues are putting forth great effort to ensure everything runs smoothly and your experience is encouraging and rewarding. We want you to have the best time possible. Our Convention this year breaks from the Friday/Saturday program of  past and will be held on a Saturday/Sunday this year. It is our hope that you will enjoy the events and dinner on Saturday and return on Sunday to take advantage of the continued events, including the judging of our Show and Exhibit. We will have vendor representation this year and hope some new elements introduced to the Program will please and entertain everyone. We're making some exciting preparations for the future of LSAG and hope you'll be there to share the excitement.
The LSAG is gratified to be hosted by Fluor Corporation, a community leader in the Sugar Land area.
