2020 ARS 75th Anniversary Convention

The website for the 2020 ARS 75th Anniversary convention is now online: ARS75.org The site will also load if the secondary domain, ARS2020.org, is entered. The site has most of the pertinent information about the convention, e.g. speakers, gardens, schedule, photo contest, etc., and is being updated as more information becomes available.

We encourage you to go to the “convention updates” form on the home page in order to sign up for future updates on changes worthy of notice. You’ll also find a contact form on the “contact us” page if you wish to send notes via the website. Registration is scheduled to open, online, on December 2, 2019.


As newly posted at the ARS 2020 Convention website

We’re pleased to announce that the 2020 ARS Spring International Convention has been rescheduled to:  April 27 – May 1, 2022.
In the concern for everyone’s health and safety, the COVID-19 national emergency led us to the inevitable decision to postpone the 2020 ARS Convention.   Refunds on registration, dinner, and tour fees have just been completed.   
Our intention is to duplicate all elements of the 2020 convention, including the Pre-Tour (new dates: April 25-26) and Post-Tour (new dates: May 1-3), while including even more enhancements to the original plan. Registration will open again on December 1, 2021.

Meanwhile, we hope the Fall Regional Conference in Gettysburg, PA, (Sept. 25-27, 2020) will proceed unaffected.   And we’ll see you all again at the ARS 2021 Spring International Convention in Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia (June 3-6, 2021).  

All best wishes for a successful and healthy confinement.   Let’s hope it doesn’t last too long.  And we hope you can take inspiration from your own garden as it puts on its inevitable show this Spring.
