Long Island Chrysanthemum Society

The Long Island Chrysanthemum Society, Inc. (LICS) is the local chapter of the National Chrysanthemum Society (NCS). Annual dues of $30 covers membership in both organizations. Spouses or partners at one address may be joint members.

Most important, we will help you to learn how to grow and exhibit the beautiful and unusual chrysanthemums you have enjoyed at our annual LICS show. If you like, we will ask one of our experienced growers to share his or her knowledge with you as a mentor, and be available to answer your questions as you learn the art and science of growing "mums."

Any questions just email us at:
