We advocate and assist in the interchange of palm seeds, seedlings, plant material and plants amongst members as well as other affiliated chapters and mutually interested organizations worldwide.
We disseminate information relating to palms within the Society.
We promote membership in the International Palm Society. Membership to the Northern California Chapter of the Palm Society is open to all individuals, organization and corporations.
