Each spring, an Azalea Society chapter or a group of interested persons hosts a convention, and invites all our members and their friends to attend. Each convention gives you a chance to see gardens in that area, hear talks and see slide shows about azaleas, renew old friendships and make new ones, buy hard-to-find varieties of azaleas at good prices, and be a part of the annual business meeting and election of officers. Think of the convention as an Azalea Society birthday party, along with a several day immersion into azaleas.
