The OFA board of directors announced a new business strategy to pursue opportunities to manage other organizations and events. This was in response to being approached by various organizations to do so in recent years. OFA already manages America In Bloom, a non-profit organization focused on promoting public plantings through a campaign and contest that engages communities.
“Because these opportunities continued to arise, it became clear that OFA needed to discuss, from a strategic standpoint, how it would respond to the service needs of industry-related groups or events,” says OFA’s Executive Director John Holmes.
