WVNLA is pleased to offer a wide variety of opportunities to all its members and the businesses and individuals they serve – everything from presenting recognized industry authorities who provide inspiration and information to the opportunity to receive continuing education credits for state-mandated certificates.
We cooperate with and support the West Virginia Department of Agriculture, publish a quarterly newsletter containing timely announcements regarding issues important to our members and contribute to the Horticultural Research Institute. We support West Virginia college students studying horticulture and landscape architecture with scholarship opportunities. We sponsor landscape technician apprenticeship programs in cooperation with local career and technical education centers.
In order to promote fellowship, share expertise and support our local communities, we conduct meetings, tours, volunteer projects and an annual meeting featuring talented and nationally recognized speakers. Our association also sponsors the West Virginia Certified Horticulturalist Program and supports research at West Virginia University.
Regionally, we co-sponsor the annual Mid-Atlantic Nursery Trade Show (MANTS) along with the Maryland and Virginia Nursery and Landscape Associations. This nationally recognized event showcases and facilitates sales of green industry products. As a co-sponsor, WVNLA receives funds that directly benefit our members.
Thank you for your interest in WVNLA.
