 Back to School-Take Advantage of GGIA's Student Membership

Horticulture Students at the University of Georgia

The Georgia Green Industry Association has a long history of partnering with students pursuing a career in the horticulture and landscaping industry in our state and beyond. Today, we are most pleased to announce a new, complimentary membership for all students enrolled in 2 and 4 year horticulture programs in Georgia. High School Students participating in horticulture pursuits will have the opportunity to join later this year. 

The student membership is designed to help the future leaders of the industry plug in and engage with the industry and to have a greater understanding of both the issues impacting the industry as well as opportunities for the future. 

Instructor Craig Thurmond from North Georgia Technical College

"We are very excited to connect with students who will soon be entering the workforce in our industry" says Chris Butts, GGIA Executive Director. "We look forward to strengthening our relationships and finding new ways to bring students and professionals together to grow the industry. We have an incredible wealth of dedicated teachers and professors working with these students on a daily basis and the logical next step is providing them with the opportunity to learn more about the industry and the professionals who make it go."

Student members will enjoy many of the same benefits as professional members and signing up is easy. Click here to download an application or click here to sign up online
