How do you navigate your garden’s future when there are no roadmaps, instructions or how-to’s for handling the COVID-19 pandemic?

These must-attend sessions (each 90 minutes) are designed to help you, as board members of public gardens, understand your role and value in advancing your institution in 2021 and beyond. Some sessions are just for board members while others tackle issues of interest to both CEOs and boards. Register and attend together!

Sessions include knowledgeable speakers from within our industry, expert facilitation and plenty of time for interactive discussion to share experiences, make connections, and craft solutions.

Your institution’s membership with the American Public Gardens Association qualifies you for the Member-only registration rate of $25 per session. (Non-Member rate: $50)

All board member registrants in good Member standing will join an exclusive discussion forum to continue the conversation among others throughout the coming year. This forum will be open to ANY garden board member whose contact information has been added to your member organization’s contact roster with the Association.

The Association has made a decision to NOT record the board-only Garden Board Member Experience: The Virtual Sessions for on-demand viewing, by either registrants or the general membership. We are committed to creating a safe environment that invites open and candid discussion, and active participation and dialogue by all attendees.

By registering for one or more of these events, you understand that board-only content is available only via live participation.

Sessions may have reference or pre-reading materials associated with them. These can be accessed either via the Garden Board Member Discussion Forum, during the session itself, and/or sent in advance to registrants.

Support for The Garden Board Experience has been provided through our industry partner, Blackbaud.
