ANLA joins OFA for 2008 Short Course
The American Nursery and Landscape Association will join OFA — an Association of Floriculture Professionals for its 2008 Short Course trade show in Columbus, Ohio.
ANLA will partner with OFA on several of the more than 130 education sessions at the 1,400-booth trade show.
"OFA has long supported ANLA's government advocacy efforts, which address issues like labor and immigration reform that affect both our memberships," says Dwight Hughes, ANLA's president. "We welcome this opportunity to work together and expose our leadership to the impressive education and trade show OFA puts on each year."
