The 2004 Convention of the
Azalea Society of America
We look forward to welcoming you to the “Best Bloomin’ Azaleas in Bay Country,” the Azalea Society of America
(ASA) 2004 National Meeting and Convention, sponsored by the
Ben Morrison Chapter.
Excitement is building for what we believe will be an enjoyable and educational event for all participants. The Planning
Committee, chaired by Carol Segree, has been working diligently for more than a year to ensure its success, including
a judged flower show sponsored by the
Potomac Valley Chapter of the American Rhododendron Society (both
azaleas and rhododendrons will be accepted), the ever-popular plant sale, and fabulous tours of the surrounding areas
and popular speakers that all touch upon our theme, “Best Bloomin’ Azaleas in Bay Country” and on Benjamin
Y. Morrison, the first director of The National Arboretum and our chapter’s namesake.
For detailed information on hotel accommodations, schedule, registration form, and speakers’ biographies, please see
the 2004 Convention insert in the The Azalean or follow the
links on the side bar including a printable registration form under Registration. For more information on the
flower show or the plant sale, visit the Plants link.
Four all-day tours of both public and private gardens are scheduled, two on Friday and two on Saturday. Each
offers a special feature, making selecting just one each day a difficult choice. We suggest you reserve early to avoid
Mark your calendars for this exciting convention and join us for the Best Bloomin' Azaleas
in Bay Country, May 6th through May 9th, 2004.
