The AIS National Conventions

Judges Training

The American Iris Society (AIS) hosts National Conventions annually during the Spring Iris bloom with opportunities to tour iris gardens, attend educational presentations, meet and talk with irisarians and iris hybridizers (the folks that create new iris), enjoy welcome and awards dinners, purchase iris items from the AIS storefront and boutique, and participate in iris auctions. There is also a business meeting held during a Spring convention. The Spring conventions are hosted by AIS Affiliate Societies at varying locations each year across the United States and in Canada.

There are a number of popularity convention awards that result from convention attendee voting. Attendees do not have to be members of the AIS to particpate in the popularity voting. The awards are listed below with links to each of the convention awards pages:

There is also a Fall meeting held which is primarlily a business meeting. The Fall meeting is held in person every third year with the other two years being held virtually. The in person Fall meetings are also hosted by AIS Affilaites or members of AIS Affiliates at varying locations. For a printable list of the Fall Meetings click here.
