Central Region Director
Jodi Meyer


Theme: “Bee A Petal Pusher-Plant America”
















Hello to all who are reading this final message from this CR Director. Boy, the last two years seem like a blink of an eye. It was in Biloxi, Mississippi that my term began.


A lot has happened in this term, most out of my control or planning. I was thinking of Carol Yee frequently during these last few months as she prepares her Executive Board and Board Chairmen for her term 2021-2023. I wish her and her team all the best of luck and good experiences.


I want to say how proud I am of our Central Region State Presidents; they have done their very best at keeping the wheels of progress turning. I was able to observe and hear some of their accomplishments at the virtual meeting "Care to Share" hosted by the NGC Incoming President Mary Warshauer. It is amazing how the States have embraced the workings of technology that can benefit the gardening world. It took a pandemic to jump-start that experience but it is here to stay now. 


Thank you to the 2019-2021 Central Region Executive Board and Board Chairmen.  I appreciate all you have done for the Central Region.


A special Thank You to Central Region Alternate Director Joyce Burlington; always a great listener, adviser, and supporter.


Also, a BIG Thank You to Gloria Notaro, the CR Newsletter Chairman and Website Chairman, she keeps me on my toes.


With much appreciation and Gardening Love,


Jodi Meyer
