The 2013 Convention in Madison, Wisconsin was a huge success. Fabulous food, lectures, camaraderie, and best of all, a spectacular lilac display. Stay tuned for more photos and articles.  Thanks to everyone from all 9 countries who attended the convention, and the staff at Nancy Botanic Garden who made this first European convention a memorable achievement.
