What our members say ...
I have been involved with the New York State Nursery Landscape Association for some 45 years, initially as a Cornell Cooperative Extension person, and the last 28 years as the owner of my landscape distribution center. To this day, I cherish the camaraderie of the members and the long term friendships we’ve made. There hasn’t been a time that I did not gain knowledge and information from my friends and this association. Even recently, during the Leadership Forum, I gained a lot of insight and knowledge on topics I’m continually trying to stay abreast of. It just shows you’re never too old to learn and make lasting friendships.
NYSNLA will gather in Ithaca, New York on October 28 for a day of leadership-level education, honors and entertainment at the Institute for Labor Relations at Cornell University. We're pleased to announce NYS Agriculture and Markets Commissioner Richard Ball as our luncheon speaker, as well as the return engagement of our featured speaker Tony Bass! Tony will enlighten attendees on "Creating Employee Systems for Success." That evening, we’ll gather for our annual dinner and 2014 Environmental Beautification Award winners. A highlight of the annual dinner every year is our Nurserymen's Foundation Auction. Click here to learn more and register!
