Canadian Orchid Societies Working Together

The COC Survey

January 30, 2015

The COC Executive asks that everyone who belongs to a COC affiliated orchid society please participate in the Membership Needs Assessment Survey. The purpose of this online survey is three fold:

  1. to identify the real needs of our membership so that the COC remains nimble and relevant as a service organization;
  2. to strengthen our relationship with member societies and the COC Representatives;
  3. to provide the executive team with critical intelligence in establishing and prioritizing a concrete yet attainable work plan for the next year.

The COC on Facebook

October 04, 2012

The Canadian Orchid Congress and Montreal/Toronto Judging Centers have launched a new Facebook site under the name "ORCHID JOURNAL".

This initiative was developed to enhance and compliment local society efforts in maintaining information sites and is intended to be used as an orchid community bulletin board. Your orchid society and its members can now post directly to this site - pictures, meeting notices, recognition of special volunteers' contributions, show publicity, etc.

Society Executive not Facebook savvy?? - send show pictures and publicity promos, announcements etc. directly to myself (below) and we will post them for you!

If your Society maintains a Facebook site, please ‘like’ us at Orchid Journal and your site will get the latest in updates from the COC and your orchid community.

Please contact me if you have any questions and/or suggestions!
