  2. Provide a forum for disseminating orchid-growing information through educational programs offered to its members and the public;
  3. Support local and global orchid conservation efforts;
  4. Enjoy the fellowship of others who share a fascination with orchids.

Next Meeting

Who We Are

Central Illinois Orchid Society was founded in 1958. Our members come from Champaign-Urbana and surrounding cities.


Due to the ongoing health concerns, the CIOS Board of Directors has decided to cancel the  next meeting scheduled on Monday, April 13 .  At this point, there is no plan to reschedule the speaker.   In addition, all the future programs from May on will be posted here on a month by month basis.


The 2020 Show and Sale was a huge success. We were fortunate to have been able to hold it because many other societies had to cancell their events since then.  Thank you to all who attended, and we apologize if you arrived after we were sold out.  Hopefully, we can make it better next year.
