Providing educational opportunities has long been an important function of the NVNLA. Structured programs we offer include our Spring Jump Start Meeting, the Green Industry Professional Seminar and Pesticide Applicator Re-Certification, the Green Industry Professional Field Day and Trade Show, our Virginia Certified Horticulturist Test Review Classes (See descriptions of these events below.)

Informal educational opportunities abound at our general membership meetings. The meetings are held at interesting sites, usually with expertly lead tours. We often have programs at the meetings that expose the members to the latest developments in the industry or inspire them to try ‘something new.’
