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
  2. American Camellia Society
  3. American Conifer Society
  4. American Daffodil Society
  5. American Dahlia Society
  6. American Horticulture Society
  7. American Iris Society
  8. American Orchid Society
  9. American Rhododendron Society
  10. American Rose Society
  11. Herb Society of America
  12. National Chrysanthemum Society
Each organization’s website link is shown above. We hope that we will seek out those that are of interest to you, or even better, review each because you might find a new interest. We have put together a page with some ideas from these we hope you will add to.
