An annual meeting hosted by a member institution is held each spring. Here members have a chance to meet one another to
discuss matters of mutual interest and concern, and have a unique opportunity to get an insider's view of the host institution.
The yearly meetings have included lectures on the care and preservation of collections, computer systems and services, as well as
talks on garden literature and botanical art. Individual programs and a business meeting are regularly complemented by site
visits to neighboring gardens and historic locales.
Members of the Council on Botanical and Horticultural Libraries are invited
to attend CBHL's 45th Annual Meeting in 2014.
