National plant societies convene in Shreveport, look to future

Directors of plant societies from around the country will convene at the American Rose Center in Shreveport for a weekend summit on how to preserve their organizations. The American Rose Society is hosting the meeting that will discuss thorny issues about how these groups are to stay relevant when their member rolls continue to decline. American Rose Society executive director Jeff Ware hopes to exchange ideas with his counterparts who represent groups like the camellia, orchid, day lily and iris.
