AERGC Invites You to Join.
The greenhouse manager at an educational or research institute needs
specialized information, rarely available from publications or short
courses geared towards commercial plant growers. Our email forum
and annual meeting introduce you to people doing the same job as you.
Very quickly, a free and easy communication is established that facilitates
sharing a wealth of knowledge. Members enjoy a reduced registration
rate for the annual meeting and receive online access to the AERGC Newsletter.
The AERGC is a great source for finding unusual seed or plants
for your collection. A free plant swap is a highlight at each annual
meeting, held in different locations in the US or Canada. Job announcements
and related links are posted on the AERGC website. Members also have access to the AERGC Newsletter archives
available via the web site with 25 years of valuable information.
Greenhouse managers at institutes are usually working alone, without
a natural peer group at their institution, leading to a feeling of
professional isolation. Within AERGC, you are never alone. The tone
of our email forum is factual, fun and friendly. Our annual meeting
is small enough to get to know everyone over the three days of seminars
Partnering with us in the AERGC are industry representatives of horticultural
products companies. They join in order to get to know our work better
and share their expertise, knowing that sales will flow naturally
from these relationships without the need for a strong sales approach.
