The high cost of mailing the "Fleur de Lis" to our international members has required an increase in the cost of international membership. International members are urged to consider e-membership as a more affordable alternative.
Electronic members do not receive a printed copy of the Fleur de Lis but enjoy all rights and privileges of a regular member.
Electronic memberships will allow members to enter member only portions of the website (you will be provided a user ID and password -- you can change the password once you enter the site) and to read and download copies of the "Fleur de Lis". Electronic memberships also have access to the SLI checklist of cultivars. Members can have both a regular membership and an electronic membership which will allow them to recieve a printed copy of Fleur de Lis and access to the members only section of the website.
