International Palm Society
The IPS site is the long-established 'Mecca' site for palm enthusiasts and growers. It is similar to the European Palm Society site in that it offers valuable information about palm species, where to buy them, botanical details, books info, an image gallery and message board. Also like the EPS you can actually join the society online. There is a brief overview about the IPS and its aims and objectives along with information about meetings and its own journal 'PALMS' (formerly 'Principes'). Back issues can be ordered online and also available is a guestbook, the chance to subscribe to the palm society list and much more.

The Southeastern Palm Society
The Southeastern Palm Society is a friendly and respected source of advice on how to grow hardy palms, cycads, citrus and many other subtropical plants in the southeastern United States north of Florida. SPS meetings are held quarterly at notable public and private gardens. Our get-togethers are informal, with opportunities to share our common experiences. Depending on the season, meetings feature an expert speaker, plant auction or plant sale. Members and non-members alike are welcome to attend.
The Bamboo Society
The Bamboo Society was originally formed by Michael Hirsh in 1985, and was called The Bamboo Network. It amalgamated with other European societies in 1986, and was renamed The European Bamboo Network in order to differentiate it from the Australian Bamboo network. In 1989, the European Bamboo Network reverted to its former regional basis, and the British society was renamed The Bamboo Society (EBS Great Britain). The Society is affiliated to The Royal Horticultural Society.
Central Florida Palm & Cycad Society
The Central Florida Palm and Cycad Society (CFPACS) is affiliated with the International Palm Society, The Cycad Society and the Palm and Cycad Societies of Florida. We are a non-profit, non-partisan organization whose goals are to be in operation solely and exclusively for scientific and educational purposes related to the study of palms and cycads, their propagation, culture, conservation, care, and development.
The Tropical Garden Society of Sydney

It also provides access to plants that are not readily available in Sydney. Regular meetings are held in a central location and have a friendly, informal and non-competitive atmosphere.
