|MCH Board Committee|
The Massachusetts Certified Horticulturist Program serves MNLA members by providing opportunities to increase knowledge and promote best practices across the green industry. The MCH Board is responsible for overseeing all aspects of MCH Certification Programs, from producing training materials and events to proctoring bi-annual exams and overseeing recertification credits. They also host a special MCH Day Luncheon and Outing for all MCHs.
The MCH Board meets quarterly, plus the annual MNLA Leadership Forum. At all times, the MCH Board is made up of a cross section of MNLA members. We look for people with experience in nursery, landscape, garden center, public spaces and more. All Board Members have an equal voice and are given the opportunity to contribute to (and lead) this hands-on, active team. Board Members are also encouraged to attend MNLA events in order to interact with the MCHs they represent. MCH Board Members serve a 2 year term, and are elected by the MNLA membership.
