Yes, it was announced in the last GATW. Check with membership to be sure you are currently a member or clear it up the mistake. Membership email is email@example.com
The annual meeting is June 3 up here in Carmichael, a suburb of Sacramento. On June 2, we are having a plant sale, open to IGS members only from 9 to noon and then open to the public noon to 4. Sunday, June 3, we are having three speakers with short parts, a very special announcement, lunch and a live auction of some special plants. Will be a fun day.
When you clear up the membership situation, they will be sure to mail you a journal right away so you can sign up.
