What are webinars? Webinars are an internet conference where you can hear the speaker and view his presentation, ask questions, and hear interactions from other members of the audience. You can join either on your computer or by phone. You can join from anywhere, via your Mac, PC or even your mobile device. Audio is included, so attendees can phone in or use VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol). You will need a microphone for your computer to use VoIP. If you cannot make the actual presentation, there will be a link on the website where you can view the webinar at your convenience.
We are preparing text and images for our fifth annual magazine supplement. What started as a way to publish an article that was too big for a regular issue of
ORCHIDS (Phil Spence’s detailed look at the Latouria section of Dendrobium) has become an eagerly anticipated bonus issue of
the year. A separate publication gives us the opportunity to present a monograph to our members each year without compromising the general interest of the monthly issues. We continually strive to improve the quality of the supplement giving AOS members a valuable addition to their orchid libraries.
For the 2014 supplement we are fortunate to be able to give members a comprehensive overview of Stanhopea written by the acknowledged expert on the genus, Rudolf Jenny. Once again we appeal to our members for a small (or large) donation to underwrite the expense of the project. Your donation serves as a vote of confidence that you want us to continue producing an annual supplement. Please select "Annual Magazine Supplement" as donation type. Thank you.
