Even if your "iris specialty" is other than Tall Bearded irises, please cast your ballot in the
AIS Tall Bearded Symposium.
The AIS Symposium is an annual popularity poll of Tall Bearded Iris conducted by the AIS. All AIS members may vote. The top 100 Tall Bearded iris are ranked. The results of the symposium each year are published in the AIS Bulletin.
All AIS members received the AIS Tall Bearded Symposium Ballot in the July AIS Bulletin. Instructions are on each ballot indicating that it is to be returned to the RVP of the Region in which the member resides. The deadline for the RVP to receive Symposium Ballots from
members is September 1.
All memberships that receive a symposium ballot are eligible to vote it. This includes not only memberships belonging to persons, but also memberships belonging to affiliates, clubs and libraries. No member should vote for more than 25 varieties. Please read the instructions carefully.
The AIS website www.irises.org
shows the AIS Regions with the name and address for all RVPs as well as having a copy of the ballot. The RVP now has the option of accepting ballots by e-mail (by number or name) so contact him/her to see if they will accept by e-mail.
This is an opportunity for all AIS members to have a say in naming the 100 Favorite Irises so please vote!
