Welcome – Follow Us to Des Moines in 2017

Region 21 of the American Iris Society is hosting the 2017 AIS Convention in Des Moines, Iowa. We hope you will follow us on this website (blog) to learn about how we get to 2017 and then come to the Convention!  Mark your calendars for May 22-26, 2017.  Update:  The dates are now May 23-27, 2017.

One of our experiments for the Convention is this type of website.  By showing what is happening as we prepare, hopefully it will help you think about hosting a future Convention as well.  It may give you some ideas what to expect, what you might do, and possibly what not to do.  Let us know what would be helpful for you to find here.  You can leave comments on any posting or use our email addresses.  You are welcome to contact wrmesser@gmail.com for website or other questions as well.
