Important Information for our Members

 

We have been reminded by the accountant who does our taxes that there are certain requirements for a 501(c)3 non profit that we must follow.  Our Treasurer must sign our tax form and verify that we have followed these requirements and that we are in compliance with the law.  These requirements or restrictions are mandated by the state of Florida.

 

Members cannot profit from being a member of our organization.

·        A member cannot be paid to speak or present a program at a meeting.  If a member is presenting a program, the member can be reimbursed for materials used to present the program but the member cannot be paid to speak or paid for items or plants that belong to the member.

·        A member cannot solicit for trips or excursions during a meeting.  All communication must be done outside the Garden Club.  If a member receives a free trip or plane fare for a trip, a 1099 tax form must be given.

Club or Circle dues of members cannot be paid by the Garden Club of St. Petersburg or its Circles.

    Your Garden Club Membership has its advantages

The club pays for a membership in the Florida Botanical Gardens Foundation, which not only supports new projects and construction in the Florida Botanical Gardens, it also provides members with special benefits; one of which is the reciprocal agreement with the American Horticultural Society.  This membership card can be borrowed for the American Horticultural Society’s Reciprocal Admissions Program that offers free admission and additional benefits at botanical gardens, arboreta, and conservatories throughout North America.

Below is a link to the list of gardens by state:

Also, some area nurseries and garden centers honor our membership card with a discount:

     Art Stone Orchids on Tyrone Blvd.

 

EMERGENCY INFORMATION

 Everyone should have their circle name tag hanging around their neck. Check and see if there is a piece of paper behind your name tag? This piece of paper contains your emergency information.  It is very important that we know your emergency information, whom to contact and any medical conditions you have and/or the medications you take. The paper stays in your name tag and will only be used if there is an emergency, so please fill the paper out and place it behind your name tag.
