Volunteer Service and Recognition Awards

The success of the American Orchid Society depends in a large part on the volunteer service of its many members. Without their dedicated help, fewer services and programs would be available. So once a year the AOS recognizes and rewards individuals, teams, and societies who have rendered outstanding service to the organization in various capacities.  This section explains how a member can nominate a worthy recipient and honors all those who have been recognized in the past.

The AOS needs YOU! Become an AOS volunteer! Join a committee and help develop and build new services, and modernize the old.  Get involved! Not only can volunteering be fun and personally rewarding, but you may make new friends and help provide services and products which enrich the AOS experience for both you and all members.
