WELCOME TO THE EASTERN REGION


 Are you located in the northern and eastern half of the United States or eastern Canada? Then there is probably an Eastern Region IPPS member near you willing to share information on production and propagation! You also have a chance to attend one of our day-long area meetings showcasing new techniques and face-to-face contacts. The Eastern Region monthly e-newsletter is a quick and easy way to get a sense of who we are. Our yearly conference moves to a new location in the region each year, so eventually it will come nearby. It is our showcase of topics, tours and get-togethers, all with the purpose of learning and connecting with other growers, researchers, teachers, breeders and botanical garden managers. This is a unique mix of people you won’t find in other organizations!

Benefits of Membership:

  • Monthly issues of our electronic newsletter. Check out archived issues HERE. 
  • Member registration rate at the annual and area meetings
  • Access to the “Members Only” area of the IPPS website.
  • Unlimited free article downloads from the Combined Proceedings – high value, specialist papers only available here!
 

 Support our IPPS Eastern Region Foundation which provides research grants and offers academic scholarships to college and university faculty, students and personnel as well as to industry propagators and researchers. The Foundation has made a commitment to develop future horticultural leaders as well as support scientific research that will pioneer new directions for the industry.


Steve Castorani, Owner, North Creek Nurseries:
“Being a member of IPPS keeps my company and me current on trends in the industry and in the world of plant propagation and production. It also offers a great opportunity to get to know and share experiences with others who have the same love of plants that I do. IPPS hosts the best annual meetings offering subjects that are relevant, people that are engaged and friendly. Fantastic tours to interesting places, many behind the scenes that you would never see without being a member. Plus, the yearly proceedings are an added benefit. All of this at a cost that is far below what other professional organizations charge.”
