PLNA was well represented
at MANTS this year with eighty-eight members exhibiting their products and
services, many of which are grown and distributed in Pennsylvania. While
PLNA did not have a booth at the show this year, the staff attended the show with
the specific intent to visit many of its members. Other than PANTS, this
is one of the few opportunities staff has to talk face-to-face with our members
who are growers and suppliers. Working
the show in this fashion provided staff the opportunity to put faces with the
names that we know so well and allowed the members to provide us with feedback
and insight on what they value most out of their membership with PLNA. We have many members who are not based in
Pennsylvania but still value that membership with PLNA because of the timely
information we provide to them through the website and e-News. And if they feel the need to continue to
support us, we certainly hope you support them.
Here’s a challenge for
you … do you know who your fellow members are?
Take some time and look through the online member directory on PLNA.com and
support your fellow members. Together
our members from all sectors, garden centers, growers, contractors,
distributors, and services, allow PLNA to move forward representing your
interests and providing you with resources to build and demonstrate professionalism
for the Pennsylvania Green Industry.
