Join Us!

The International Camellia Society is a charity with members around the world who all share a love of everything 'Camellia'

Joining is not just about education, science, new varieties, preservation of old varieties, its about friendships aswell. It is a truly international community and our members frequently find that ICS visitors from outside their own area become lifelong friends, even if they are only able to meet at our bi-annual congresses!

Each year, you'll receive a 100+ page journal, with masses of interesting articles about camellias, some scientific, some basic and some just interesting.

How to become a member?

  1. A person signs up, enters his/her email address and gets a “pending” account.
  2. The website sends a verification email to check that the person is real (not a “robot”).
  3. The person must confirm by clicking on a “verification link” in that email. When the person does it, the related user account is marked as “active”. If the person does not verify the account, after a few days the pending account is deleted.
  4. After verifying the email, the user account is “active”, but it is not yet linked to any particular ICS region (“unallocated”).
  5. If the person pays online via PayPal, the person will have  a 1-year membership. The person is now a “member”  and may access the password-protected areas (such as the Journal).
  6. The ICS Membership Representative can make someone a Member, via the Membership Administration Area, which is what you should do if someone pays directly (i.e. not via PayPal).
