An Open Invitation to All CLCA Members

On behalf of the CLCA SFBA Chapter Auxiliary, I would like to extend a warm invitation to become a member of the Auxiliary. Established in the early 1950’s, the CLCA Auxiliary was formed as an assistance and support group to CLCA. 

We lend a helping hand when needed throughout the year, wheth­er in the form of organizing functions, providing refresh­ments during specific activities or just being there when the Association needs us. In addition, we raise funds to support the Landscape Educational Advancement Foundation (LEAF). All representatives of CLCA members (regular, associate or affiliate) are eligible to be members of the Auxiliary. 

We can accomplish great things with your participa­tion on whatever level of interest you may have and wish to share. If you have any questions or wish to speak with someone about the Auxiliary, please feel free to call or email me. I hope you will consider becoming a member of the Auxiliary.
