Coalition Of American Plant Societies

Coalition of American Plant Societies

The Coalition of American Plant Societies (CAPS) was started in 2012 to provide a forum for the leaders of national plant societies.These annual “summits” provide an avenue to discuss common opportunities and challenges, to network, and to foster mutual success.It is hoped that through this sharing, individual organizations would be better able to address challenges within their own organization.We have learned that the plant societies had many common challenges.

The National Chrysanthemum Society participated in the meetings in 2013 and 2014. The following organizations participated in 2014:
  1. African Violet Society of America http://www.avsa.org/
  2. American Camellia Society http://www.camellias-acs.com/
  3. American Conifer Society http://conifersociety.org/
  4. American Daffodil Society http://daffodilusa.org/
