Time to plan for an Orchid Conference!

Ready for a fun get away? April 28 thru May 2 is the Spring 2010 AOS Members Meeting which is being hosted by the Oklahoma Orchid Society in OKC. This is an Orchid Conference which includes the Orchid Digest, the Southwest Regional Orchid Growers Association, International Phalaenopsis Alliance, Pleurothallid Alliance and the Slipper Orchid Alliance as well as the AOS – they are all meeting at a fabulous orchid show. The conference starts off with a preview party on Thursday evening, then on Friday the keynote speaker is Joyce Stewart after which sales and the show open to the public. Several orchid lectures are scheduled. Saturday evening is a fun auction followed by dinner and a Hoedown party. You can see all of details as well as download a registration form at under ‘Events’ and then ‘Members Meetings’.

As an affiliated society member you are invited to attend this conference including the AOS Affiliated Society Breakfast on Friday, April 30th where we will be sharing the results of our Innovative Society Survey. Please join us for orchids, socializing, lectures and all kinds of orchid fun. Registration is $89 before 4/1/2010 after which the price goes up to $109. Every registrant gets a fabulous goodie bag! Hotel rooms start at $89. Is this meeting too far west for you? The Fall 2010 AOS meeting is in Virginia Beach, VA on October 27 - 31. Attend either or both and you’re sure to have a great time. I hope to see you in OKC!
