In July 2019, our Historian Committee presented the membership with a photo board of those who have been instrumental in our success - they paved the way. The committee stated "It is important for our association to know where we came from, where we are and where we are going!" Our records indicate our first president was in 1943! Our members involvement and belief in the value/benefit of a trade association keep PLANT WNY strong and growing.
We thank those of gave of their time, efforts and foresight to believe in a trade association for the green industry!
