Membership Information

Membership in Local, Regional, and National Hosta Societies


Through a coordinated effort, national, regional and local hosta societies promote education, research, and camaraderie. All are not-for-profit groups and depend on volunteerism and support from their members.

Research is typically commissioned by the American Hosta Society (AHS) and is at least partially funded by regional and local societies. Both the Midwest Regional Hosta Society (MRHS) and the Central Illinois Hosta Society (CIHS) have been significant financial contributors, supporting research and other worthy endeavors of the AHS.

Detailed information regarding the benefits of membership in the following hosta societies is posted on our Resources page.
