Bromeliad Society International Membership Application

You are invited to become a member of BSI. There are many reasons to join: 1) bimonthly journal, 2) directory of members 3) results of the most recent research in the areas of disease, pests, insecticides, fungicides and growth regulators, 4) current changes in bromeliad nomenclature 5) business news (technology, marketing and industry trends), and 6) the calendar of events section with the upcoming shows that affiliate societies are staging anywhere in the world.

BSI sponsors World Bromeliad Conferences every other year. In 1996 it was in Orlando, Florida and in 1998 it will be in Houston, Texas. If you have never seen a World Bromeliad Conference, it is sensational and includes a judged show, reception, breakfast, raffles, commercial and society displays, judge's school, lectures, auctions, garden tours, and commercial and member plant sales.
