Notes from the President
CIH President, CHort FCIHort
I am delighted to announce the launch of the NEW Chartered Institute of Horticulture website.
This is a fresh, interactive and professional digital window to horticulture and our institute, so come on in and sees us in our new space! Our goal with this new website is to provide our visitors with an easier way to learn about horticulture and our institute. Our new website is interactive and gives better access, to our current members and prospective members, to see some really useful information about our events, membership details and the services we provide on the homepage.
Amongst the new features the site contains integrated social media buttons for Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn to foster improved communication with our members. We will be constantly updating our content with helpful information, articles, blogs, newsletters, announcements and member and activities.
We hope you find our new website fresh and modern; we have worked hard to make sure it contains valuable information to assist you.
If you work in horticulture and are serious about pursuing a career in this most fascinating and diverse of industries, I urge you to join the Chartered Institute of Horticulture and consider becoming a Chartered Horticulturist.
