Building Life-long Investment in Your Garden

The inaugural symposium for the Development and Membership Section will provide an engaging and inspirational forum for networking and learning with peers from across the country through plenary speakers, specialized sessions, and garden tours.  Participants will be the first to hear and discuss implications of a Philanthropic Landscape Survey for gardens and arboreta, dive deep into sessions focused on advancing the long-term committments of our members and donors, and use roundtable conversations to share and learn from others about the specific issues faced in our daily work.
