American Rhododendron Society Standing Committees, 1959-1960
The American Rhododendron Society
August 5, 1959
As has been announced in the A.R.S. Bulletin, an International Rhododendron Conference, to be held in Portland, Oregon, is being planned for 1961. It is going to require a great deal of planning and work to accomplish this in a manner of which we shall all be proud. The Directors of the A.R.S. have given it considerable thought and discussion and have authorized me to appoint committees to plan the various activities connected with an undertaking of this kind.
It did not seem feasible to contact every individual personally and get his consent to serve on a committee. This is, therefore, a request to all members on the list to please serve, or let me know that you do not wish to do so. I hope you will serve. If you would prefer a different committee assignment please let me know.
To Committee Chairman: If there are members you would like to add to your committee please feel free to do so, letting me know so the complete committee roster can be published in the Bulletin.
