I can't understand what all the fuss is about?  The IAS stands for the
International Aroid Society doesn't it?  International implies World?

Why change name/refer to it differently when we're already talking about
the same thing?  If it was a National Aroid Society then it would be one
country, but the International means it breaks national borders.

My 2 cents worth (although with the current Australian currency...... based
from the US that is only my 1 cent worth <grin>)
