Conventions and Activities (updated July 29, 2015)
AIS 2016 Convention: Everyone is now looking forward to the next AIS Convention which will take place in the Newark, New Jersey area. The convention will take place May 23-28, 2016 with visits to official iris tour gardens in the surrounding area.
The convention organizers have their own website and the basic information for the 2016 convention is now available for your perusal.
As usual we
have all the convention details conveniently summarized and provided here in a special area of the AIS website to assist you in your plans to attend.
AIS Fall Board Meeting - Each year, the AIS also has a Fall Meeting. AIS business is conducted at these meetings, and there are no garden tours. Most participants are AIS Board members, RVPs, and other office holders. All interested AIS members, however, are welcome and encouraged to go. AIS Board meetings are open to all AIS members.
Other Activities - Many AIS Sections, AIS Regions and local clubs also have garden tours, activities and meetings that you can participate in. For further information and details please contact your local AIS RVP or a local club leader (see Local Iris Societies). These people will be pleased to help you with your iris interest and to connect you with a local iris group.
