To promote the conservation of native species in their natural habitat.
By supporting artificial propagation of these species.
In view of the great diversity of orchids, the Society pursues an educational component by spreading knowledge, particularly through courses, conferences and through personal exchanges between its members.
Every year the Society participates in many orchid shows and puts on its own show, Orchidexpo, a major international event where its members have free admission.
This show is the major highlight of the year's activities. Visitors have the chance to see many beautiful orchid genera. The plants, displays and works of art are all judged by judges of The American Orchid Society (AOS), and awards are granted. The sales area offers one of the largest selection of plants for purchase.
