North American Clivia Society

It is a pleasure to announce that the North American Clivia Society has 
been formed. The Society has been founded with the following primary goals: 
to be dedicated to the promotion, the enjoyment, the studying, and the 
cultivation of the genus Clivia.

The purpose of the Society will be to bring together those of us who love 
clivias in North America (United States, Canada, and Mexico), to promote 
the scientific investigation, the appreciation, and the cultivation of 
Clivia, and to facilitate communication among those interested in these 
special plants.


  >>   A published Newsletter several times a year; eventually intended to 
be published on a regular schedule.

 >>     The Newsletter will be available in both print and electronic forms.

 >>     A members-only auction of very special plants donated to the NACS 
by members and growers to support the Society.

 >>     A membership list, available only to members, to facilitate 

It is intended to extend this list of benefits as the Society grows. The 
Society will try to assist groups in starting local and regional Clivia 
Clubs anywhere in North America -- Canada, Mexico, and the United States.
