Guest Services Community

Guest Services

The Guest Services Community realizes that for a public garden or arboretum to thrive, we must deliver exceptional service. Attention must be devoted to the safety, needs, and expectations of the visiting public, as well as the fulfillment of the organization’s mission. This community establishes a forum where guest services professionals associated with public gardens and arboreta may become acquainted, share best practices, collaborate, and assist each other with guest services-related issues.
