Committees

The American Primrose Society is run entirely by volunteers.  There are always opportunities to make new friends and serve the aims of the Society.

The President has the responsibility for forming committees whenever a need is determined.   Please contact the President ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) if you are interested in helping in any of the committees listed below.

Here is some of the work of the current committees of the APS:
