Step three: Add your voice and get Active. Help set the agenda
For over one hundred years the Virginia state horticultural Society has worked to speak with one organized voice for the fruit industry. The society is “the voice” of Virginia fruit growers and is dedicated to representing your interest on state and federal issues.
Our ability to be effective depends on your financial support and participation. Your support, together with those of other society members, can accomplish what no single grower can do alone.
You ask, what can membership do for me?
1.The society can add to your knowledge. Along with a membership directory, members receive a bi-monthly newsletter containing horticultural information, topics on production practices, public affairs updates and feature articles on people and events within the industry.
2. The society can broaden your sources. Attending the annual meeting, industry functions and working on committees are great meeting grounds to introduce you to industry leaders, political representatives, federal and state officials, suppliers and other growers.
Your society membership is an investment in the future. If you are a grower, an employee, in research or extension, or if you trade with the fruit industry, you have a stake in the well being of vshs. We need and welcome your support and the support of your fruit growing neighbor.
Our continued success depends on numbers. By joining, you’ll become a part of a large but close-knit group of individuals committed to protecting and representing the interest of the Virginia fruit industry.
