ANLA is holding our annual meeting in conjunction with the OFA Short Course this July. The schedule includes leadership meetings for ANLA's board and divisions, Garden Center University, and our annual reception with the Horticultural Research Institute on Saturday night, July 14th, from 5:30 - 8:00 PM featuring a fundraiser and the presentation of ANLA's Hall of Fame award. OFA, ANLA's partner in the joint venture announced earlier this year, has invited all ANLA members to attend the Short Course at the OFA member rate. The OFA Short Course is considered horticulture’s premier convention and marketplace where industry professionals come together to do business, get answers, see what’s new, and catch up. There is an educational program for growers, retailers and landscape professionals, and the 7-acre all-industry trade show showcases products that represent a significant part of the grower, garden retail and landscape market. This is your opportunity to see 2012's new introductions in addition to being inspired by innovative and exciting plant combinations.
