We have eight general meetings during the year, 2 field trip months and 2 party months in lieu of a general meeting. 

We have 2 special events: The Annual Orchid Auction is held in March or April at USF Botanical Gardens. We also try to have an Orchid Expo (show and vendor sales) in September or October. 

May is our Spring party and installation of any new officers. A luncheon is provided by membership and all members attending who have renewed their membership for the upcoming year, receive a gift orchid. 

July and November is field trip month. We visit growers, browse their greenhouses and purchase orchids for our collections.
