AIS Regions and Affiliated Societies (updated November 25, 2015)
purple rule

The American Iris Society is a nonprofit institution incorporated February 2, 1927, in the County of Philadelphia, State of Pennsylvania. By the terms of the Charter, the Corporation has no stockholders and exists for the sole purpose of promoting the culture and improvement of the Iris.

AIS Regions: In furtherance of these purposes, the AIS Board of Directors shall designate and constitute certain geographical divisions as official AIS Regions.  The AIS Board of Directors shall, as deemed necessary in furtherance of the purposes of the AIS, rescind or change the designated boundaries of such official AIS Regions.

AIS Affiliates: "An organization with purposes consistent with those of the AIS and with a majority of its membership within one AIS region shall be eligible for acceptance as an Affiliate of the AIS. The prerequisites for acceptance as an AIS Affiliate and the privileges granted shall be determined by the AIS Board of Directors. The AIS shall not be responsible for the debts or liabilities of any of its Affiliates, and shall have no power to exercise control over the Affiliate except pursuant to any Affiliation Agreement entered into as a condition of Affiliate status."

AIS Affiliates, either new or existing, file their affiliation application on an annual basis through their corresponding area AIS RVP. The AIS RVP then reviews and submits this to the AIS for registration.

The AIS affiliate listings shown here on the AIS website will be updated once the annual approval process is complete for 2014.
