This event is free and there are multiple dates available. Each event will have a slightly different focus and we'll provide lunch.  What’s the Chapter Roundtable, you ask? It’s a gathering of liked-minded folks from chapter-based associations that all face similar challenges. We’ll be discussing ideas and solutions around the following topics: Measuring and increasing the health of chapters and how it can be done Best practices for chapter operations (volunteer tools, processes, etc.) How to get the right statistics which will help prevent members, at both the national and chapter level, from leaving We’ve heard consistent feedback that those in the chapter community want and need a place to network with other component relations professionals. The idea is to make this a collaborative jam session with real-life solutions and resources provided as takeaways. As this is primarily a networking and learning event, please don’t forget to bring business cards to share with your peers.  And to make this event a win-win for everyone, we ask that you only attend if you currently work at an association with chapters.

Class DescriptionClass will be held at the Visitor’s Center of the beautiful U.S. National Arboretum in Washington, D.C. The class has been timed to allow us to observe their famous seven-acre native garden known as the Fern Valley Native Plant Collection, in all its summer splendor.   We'll spend the morning in the classroom working on our fern identification skills. We'll use a combination of lecture and individual study to build our powers of observation and comparison on fresh samples and illustrations of fern fronds. We will use the Fern Finder book to practice keying out fern fronds. If you don't already have a copy of Fern Finder, don't worry, they'll be available for purchase before class. This is a beginners’ class, designed to help people who've either never studied fern identification, or who have studied it and it "just didn't stick." Accordingly, we'll limit our focus to a dozen species. We will also discuss fern aesthetics, landscape uses, and ecology. We will also have a short presentation by Fern Valley’s Curator, Joan Feely, who will explain how a badly degraded woodland became the gorgeous garden it is today. Then we'll spend the afternoon outside honing our identification skills while strolling along Fern Valley’s half-mile long, handicap accessible trail. Some of the ferns you will see on the trail are cinnamon, intermediate shield, broad beech, New York, Christmas, ostrich, lady, and bracken. Joan Feely's plant combinations will provide inspiration for your own garden work or woodland restoration. By the end of this class you will have the skills and tools needed to identify not only the dozen ferns you learn in class, but most other common fern species you will encounter while hiking or gardening in Maryland.   Tentative Class Schedule9:30-10:00am | Attendees check-in and enjoy light refreshments10:00-12:00pm | Classroom activities12:00-12:30pm | Lunch (bring your own)12:30 to 2:30pm | Identification practice in Fern Valley Additional instructions, including specific parking directions, will be sent to registrants approximately a week before the class.
