A number of dahlia, and other societies are affiliated societies to the National Dahlia Society. This gives them the right to enter into Society classes at National Shows, and to award National Dahlia Society Medals at their own shows as well as advertising their presence in NDS publications. In addition, they receive the literature that individual members receive on joining.
A new service provided to affiliated societies is that they can have their own web page at no extra cost. This will enable show information, photos, reports as well as meeting information to be provided to their members.
