The Central East Texas Orchid Society is affliated with the American Orchid Society and Southwest Orchid Growers' Association. We are committed to the purpose of increasing the interest of our members and the public in the hobby of growing orchids.

Through printed literature, greenhouse tours, videos and oral presentations, our goal is to provide a learning experience for all of our members with help on their growing questions and problems. We also enjoy swapping a good story and showing off our latest blooms.

Our regular monthly meetings are on the third Sunday of the month at 2:00 p.m. in the Genecov Room at the Chamber of Commerce Building in downtown Tyler, Texas.

If you are interested in attending a meeting, please contact us to confirm we will be meeting in our regular location.

The public is always invited, and we heartily welcome new members!
