Members meet once a month. At these meetings a guest speaker gives a talk on a rose-related subject. An annual Magazine is published and, since 1998, biannual bulletins are also published.
The highlight of the year is the Spring Show, which is held toward the end of October. There will be no Autumn Show this year. Instead, in April we will have a non-competitive educational exhibition to show the public how to grow roses here and how to use roses in the landscape. We also offer our members visits to private gardens, nurseries and museums.
To date we have four branches in the interior of Argentina. These are in Córdoba, Mar del Plata, Mendoza and San Juan. They also hold annual shows.

AUSTRALIA Rose Society Of Australia. 2010
The National Rose Society of Australia
The National Rose Society of Australia is comprised of five State Rose Societies. It is the practice for each State of Australia to provide the President of The National Rose Society of Australia in succession on an annual basis.
We request that any correspondence be directed to the Honorary Secretary, who will distribute it promptly to our five State organizations.
Each State Society conducts an annual Spring Rose Show and an Autumn Rose Show. Owing to very wide differences in the climates of our States, the timetables for these events vary as follows:
|Spring Shows:||Queensland||early October|
|New South Wales||mid to late October|
|New South Wales||March and April|
In 2010 our Annual General Meeting will be held October 3 in Spring Hill, Queensland in conjunction with the Austrialian Rose Championships 2010. Please see www.qld.rose.org.au/calendar.html for further details.
There are many gardens in Australia. Some are open from Spring to Autumn. Others open very rarely, and a number are by appointment only. Please contact the National Secretary for lists of Gardens and Nurseries and their open dates.

With the aim of encouraging all activities concerning knowledge and love of roses, Mr. Georges van Oost founded the Society in 1926.
Special events, organised visits to rose gardens and lectures are all communicated to our members via our Newsletters. Members also receive one publication a year, called Rosa Belgica, with many articles and information concerning the Rose.
The Society supports rose trials and all other events concerning the Rose. We were one of the founding members of the World Federation of Rose Societies.
Both professional rosarians and amateurs are members of the Society.
BERMUDA. Bermuda Rose Society. 2010
The Bermuda Rose Society
We have about 100 active members. Since Bermuda is an island about 700 miles from the U.S. coastline in the Atlantic Ocean, remote from other influences, it has been called a living museum of roses. Roses were brought to the island by ships travelling from all over the world. Our main goal is to protect Bermuda’s rose heritage. We are mainly interested in Old Garden Roses.
Each year the Bermuda Rose Society raises about 500 slips of our Old Garden Roses, which we sell – this is a major fund raising activity of the Society. We also donate some to Government and to the Bermuda National Trust for parks and gardens.
The Society meets monthly from October through May, usually on the first Friday of the month at the Horticultural Hall in the Bermuda Botanical Gardens in Paget. Besides the business of the Society there is a monthly competition of cut roses and rose arrangements, and often a guest speaker. The Bermuda Rose Society usually invites one overseas guest speaker each year. Any rosarian visitors are welcome to attend.
The Society is working on a revision and update of our rose book, Roses in Bermuda, which was published in 1997 and now is completely sold out. The Society maintains a Repository Garden of Old Garden Roses in the grounds of Waterville, the headquarters of the Bermuda National Trust. It is also a participant in the Earthkind Project. The roses we have chosen for this are ‘Vincent Godsiff’, ‘Smith’s Parish’, ‘Spice’, ‘Maitland White’,'Mutabilis’ and ‘Carefree Beauty’.
As a prerequisite for membership, all persons must attend two meetings prior to submitting an application which is supported by two existing members. We do not accept foreign membership. The Society issues approximately four newsletters per session for its members.
Fees:$30.00 per year
Life Membership: $250 (may be applied for after 10 years)
CANADA Canadian Rose Society
The Canadian Rose Society 2010
The Rose Society of Ontario was founded in 1913 in Toronto by a group of dedicated ladies. Men were admitted in 1918, and by 1954 membership had spread across the country. To reflect that fact our name was officially changed to the Canadian Rose Society.
We have members from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean and from the 49th parallel in the south to the Northwest Territories in the north. Because our members are so widely spread out, our publications are a very important link. The Rose Annual is published in September, the magazine, The Rosarian, is published once a year and the newsletter, The CommPoster is published five times a year

The Asociación Chilena de la Rosa was established in 1998. It has about 30 active members, mainly in the central part of Chile. We hope to add more members from other parts of our long country by spreading knowledge about roses and increasing interest in the cultivation of roses around the country.
During the winter of 2000 we planted a large bed of Large Flowered Roses in Rosedal Parque Araucano in the Municipality of Las Condes. This rose garden is mainly maintained and supervised by members of our Society.

Mr. Zhao Shiwei – Secretary General
The China Rose Society was established in November, 1986 and is named after Rosa chinensis. It is based in Laizhou City in the province of Shandong, which is located in the central region of China, west of the Yellow Sea. The region has four seasons and the climate is very mild. The city is famous as the home of the Chinese rose, which also grows all over the nation. In fact, 52 cities now have the Rose as their official flower.
The China Rose Society has seven Vice-Presidents, each representing different areas of the country, and one federal Vice-President. It promotes the exchange of scientific information, production and research. More than 700 varieties of roses have been identified in China and the China Rose Society recently published a Rose Directory. A major centre for research and the development of new rose varieties has been set up in the suburbs of Beijing. In addition, five other centres have been set up around the country. Together they form a national system to assist with the registration and identification of roses and with new Chinese varieties entering the world market.
An Annual Rose Festival has been held in Laizhou every May 25 since 1990, and you are all cordially invited to attend. The China Rose Society also publishes an annual magazine.
