Regional Groups


There are currently two active regional groups in the U.S. in which members may participate: Southern and Northern. Regional groups offer members the opportunity to attend smaller meetings with people working under the same climatic conditions.





ASHS Southern Region (SR-ASHS)

The Southern Region of ASHS was developed in 1920.

Its purpose is to:

  • Encourage and facilitate the mutual exchange of ideas and information concerning horticultural research, extension, education, and industry in the south.

  • Promote stronger bonds among horticulturists in the southern regions.

  • Encourage participation in the national society of the American Society for Horticultural Science.

Next Meeting:
The Northeastern Plant, Pest, and Soils Conference (NEPPSC) will be held January 4-7, 2021 and will take place virtually. The theme of the 2021 meeting will be: “Opportunities for Mutual Learning: Pests and Pandemics.” NEPPSC is jointly organized by the Northern Region of the American Society for Horticultural Science, (NR-ASHS), along with the Northeastern Weed Science Society (NEWSS), and the Northeastern Tri-Societies (NE-ASA-CSSA-SSSA).

The goal of this meeting is to provide a venue to bring together people with interests in horticulture, entomology, plant pathology, weed management, agricultural systems, agronomy, and soil science for the purpose of sharing of ideas and the presentation of the results of scientific studies and outreach programs. The judged student competitions will be held virtually and will consist of both oral presentations (8-minute presentation) and lightning talks (2-minute presentation with one slide in place of the poster session). Prizes will be awarded for both competitions in the amounts of $300 (1st place), $200 (2nd place), and $100 (3rd place).
