We have some great news from the American Landscape Maintenance Association (ALMA).
They are now offering free memberships!
If you are a landscape maintenance provider, we encourage you to visit www.ALMAnow.com today to join.

Here is an article with more information about ALMA.
Here is some information from their website about the free membership:
Why Is ALMA’s Basic Membership Free?
An ALMA Basic membership is Free. Unlike any other trade organizations, we do not charge Basic membership, and our Premium Membership rate is one fixed price no matter the size of your company. Most national trade groups charge based on the size of your company. So you heard it right…no matter what your size, $29.99 a month and you’re a Premium Member!
Please understand that we are not creating two factions of the association, we’re all one family. We just don’t think it’s fair to saddle everyone with the costs associated with our comprehensive learning material when everyone doesn’t need or want it! So please don’t, don’t enter into a program that you don’t need right now. You will receive wonderful learning tools as you go free of charge and will reap huge benefits from you Basic Membership. But if you need more comprehensive learning tools and you’re at that point in your business life where you’re ready to throw it into another gear - we can help you do that!
Remember, we’re one of you. We know how tight money is today. If we can pass it on to you for free, we do. If we have direct costs that are associated to putting some program or material together for you, we allocate every resource we have to keeping those costs to a minimum. It’s been our philosophy since 1988 and we’re not going to change now!
