Benefits of Membership
Members of ASHS enjoy many rewarding benefits including:
HortTechnology - a bimonthly publication of applied horticultural science for the professional horticulturist, extension worker and practitioner.
HortScience - a monthly publication of horticultural information of interest to a broad array of horticulturists. Its goals are to apprise horticultural scientists and others interested in horticulture about developments in significant research, education, industry, and extension findings or methods.
The Journal of the American Society for Horticultural Science - a bimonthly publication of the results of original research on horticultural plants and their products or on directly related research areas. Its prime function is the communication of mission-oriented, fundamental research to other researchers.
Present your research - only ASHS Members can make oral or poster presentations at the Annual Conference.
Attend workshops, colloquia, short courses, oral and poster sessions.
Network with colleagues at social events.
Discover the nuances of regional areas through specialty horticultural tours.
Participate in Working Groups. ASHS members can participate in more than 50 Working Groups that focus on topics of specific interest to provide specialized information to members. Working Groups provide a forum for members by organizing discussion groups, workshops, colloquia, regional meetings, and short courses.
Leadership Opportunities - Active Members may run for elected office. By serving on committees, councils, and boards, individuals can sharpen their leadership skills while becoming more involved in the affairs of the Society. Members who give of themselves to ASHS find that they get more out of it! Leadership opportunities are available at the local, national, and international levels.
Members are recognized each year with Society, Division, and Working Group Awards for outstanding career achievements and published works. Each year the Society elects Fellows who have accomplished extraordinary, lifelong horticultural achievements.
