Media Committee

Are you interested in helping get out news and information? If so, the Media Committee is the one for you!

The goal of the Media Committee is to provide timely and accurate information about the Society and its activities to members and non-members. The Media committee provides guidance and support for the Society’s publications, including the newsletter (Aquilegia), the CoNPS website, social media (Facebook, Twitter, Google Group, and Meetup), and occasional publications such as the CoNPS calendar, gardening guides, etc.

We don’t have formal committee meetings but we communicate by email so you can live anywhere and be active in this committee.

Aquilegia welcomes member submissions. Following are submission deadlines and publication dates for the quarterly publication.  Contact Aquilegia Editor: Kelly Ambler (
