Dear members,
we would like to invite you to the Annual General Meeting with attached conference at October, 1st 2022. Please note our conference date, this time the first weekend in October!

We hope that the general situation will ease and that no tightening will be necessary in late summer. Nevertheless, please note the notices in issue 3 as well as on our website for any necessary changes.

As can be seen from the program below, we have once again succeeded in gaining well-known experts from the other succulents. A range of topics and contents again promise interesting lectures, great pictures and stimulating discussions. We are happy to welcome many members and friends.
