Membership Monday is a free monthly Zoom event for all garden club members. Join us on the 2nd Monday of each month from 2PM - 3PM Eastern Time. Learn new skills, share success stories, resolve commonly encountered issues, and brainstorm solutions with fellow members across the Americas.

Membership is the lifeblood of our organization, and we can all benefit when we help each other Recruit, Retain, and Revitalize our clubs. Together we are stronger!

Each workshop will present a topic of the month with a special guest speaker, followed by an open mike for Q&A and member dialogue. Unlike other NGC workshops, this will provide greater emphasis on participation and connection. We may not have every answer, but NGC Membership is committed to connecting us all together to explore solutions in a spirit of collaboration.

Videos of previous workshops are linked in Video Café and the Member Resource Library.
