AERGC is an all volunteer operated organization

Modest member dues defray costs with the production of our quarterly newsletter, our online forum and administration of our website. The organization is aimed at supporting educational greenhouse users and the industry involved with institutional greenhouses. Please have a look at our mission statement.

A unique relationship has developed between the AERGC and the greenhouse industry. Being a sponsor of the AERGC's Annual Meeting is mutually beneficial. The Annual Meeting provides a comfortable setting for personal and professional interaction between our members and you, as one of our corporate sponsors. Our Annual Meeting cannot continue to be a success without your support.

We seek sponsors to assist in costs for our annual meeting which brings those involved in institutional greenhouses together for three days. At these meetings it is common to find administrator, greenhouse engineer and vendor all working together to solve specific needs of the industry.



To request more information about being a sponsor, please contact:


Paul Engevold or Tiffany Durr

We offer sponsors the following recognition opportunities:

  • Recognition at the Annual Meeting
  • Recognition in the AERGC Newsletter**
  • Recognition on the Annual Meeting page of the AERGC web site**
  • The opportunity to distribute literature to attendees as a part of the welcome packet

    There are no defined contribution levels as companies of varying sizes have differing ranges of discretionary funds. Typical sponsorships range from $500 to $1500 USD.
** Company contact information (Company name, address, email, URL, phone and fax) and high res company logo in jpg or gif format must be submitted to the webmaster to be included on the web site and in the newsletter.

Thank You to our 2023 sponsors!

The AERGC, with generous corporate sponsorship, is proud to offer the Annual Meeting Travel Grant once again. This program enables selected members requiring financial assistance funding to attend the annual meeting. 

Grants of up to $1000 will be awarded to selected qualified recipients. It is our hope that AERGC Travel Grants will be matched by additional funding from the member's institution.

The AERGC Annual Meeting offers a deep well of experience and information freely shared among greenhouse colleagues working in the education and research fields. It is hoped that these grants will offer the opportunity for members who have not previously been able to attend the Annual Meeting, or those who have been unable to attend for several years, to do so. 

Both new and long-standing AERGC members are eligible to apply provided dues are current as of the date of the grant application.

Recipients will be required to give a 10-minute presentation on a topic of their choice, which would be of interest to the meeting attendees, at the Annual Meeting. This presentation may be, but need not be, on the same topic as the newsletter article. Recipients will also be required to submit

an article for the AERGC Newsletter prior to the 2023 meeting date. This article can be on any topic of interest to our members and may be a brief description of the applicant's facility, a useful shortcut or technique, a pest control strategy, or a bibliography. These are only suggestions, so please use your imagination. Longer articles are, of course, welcome.

The AERGC website also has a page on “Travel Grant History” and this clearly shows the increasing utility of the Travel Grant Program to the members of the organization.

For more information about the Travel Grant, contact Alex Turkewitsch or Chrislyn Particka
