Where the money goes

Since the VCPS is non profit none of the committee membersare paid for the work they do for the VCPS.Most of the membership fees go toward the printing and posting of the VCPS journal.Other costs include rent ,web hosting,purchase of new books,advertising for the annual show and legal costs. With plant give aways and meetings at members places the VCPS relies on the generosity of members. Many costs of the VCPS are offset by members sales of plants at meetings,the annual show and otherwise.10% of the profits go back into the VCPS.
