The Florida Nursery, Growers & Landscape Association (FNGLA) has announced the election of new leaders for the upcoming term. FNGLA’s 57th president, president-elect, and secretary/treasurer are now equipped to move ahead and get their hands dirty in the Florida agriculture industry.
New President, Rosemary Warner, of Native Southeastern Trees, Inc., in Osteen, Fla., took the reins from former President, Dave Self, of Wyld West Annuals, Inc., in Loxahatchee, Fla. Warner has been a member of FNGLA’s Board of Directors since 2001 and served as a chapter secretary and vice president as well as two terms as chapter president before that.
President-Elect, Monty Knox of Knox Nursery, Inc., in Winter Garden, Fla., takes his new position with plenty of FNGLA experience under his belt. Knox has been on the board and served as president of his local chapter and chair of FNGLA’s Landscape Show Committee — Florida’s largest nursery/landscape trade show.
