Why Do Students, Educators and Researchers Join SAF?

“I value membership in SAF because it historically has helped, and continues to aid, educators to keep up with changes in the floral industry.  As an Extension specialist, SAF supports my work in numerous ways. SAF makes funds available for research. The marketing arm of SAF offers images that I can use to promote Extension programs and education. SAF’s Annual convention is a platform for industry updates and interaction. They connect students with internships which can become full-time jobs. I value Floral Management magazine and share it with my students. Being a good teacher means being a good facilitator. SAF helps me to stay in touch with the retail floral business and helps me pass updated information to Agents, students and the public.”
