Education: The Pathway to Success
BloomNet® contributes $10,000 toward endowing the Floriology Institute Fund powered by BloomNet®
Knowledge is power. It’s a familiar axiom, and it certainly holds true when it comes to being successful in today’s floral marketplace. Whether you’re a flower shop owner or a floral designer – the more you know, the more you can expand your opportunities to grow your business and fulfill your career aspirations.
Floriology® Institute, powered by BloomNet®, is one of the country’s foremost centers for floral design and florist-related education. Hundreds of students, at all design skill levels, have attended hands-on classes at Floriology® Institute and many have achieved AIFD® National Certification. Many of our students are part of the current AIFD® leadership, main stage presenters and floral industry educators.
Furthering its dedication to providing new and exciting educational opportunities, BloomNet® is committed to fully funding the Floriology Institute powered by BloomNet Fund to provide registrations for the AIFD® National Symposium for years to come. We support the efforts of AIFD® Foundation, AIFD® Association and the education they both provide to the industry. It is our belief that education should be accessible to our members and all members in the floral industry regardless of economic hardship, length of time in the industry or if they have previously attended an AIFD® National Symposium.
As an AIFD® Education Partner, we wanted to create a pathway to continued education, development and growth for a stronger industry for all. We did not want the education to stop at certification but continue throughout one’s floral journey. It is our hope that other industry leaders will join in our efforts to create financial assistance, such as this, with reduced limitations and opportunities for florist of all levels of experience, regardless of membership affiliation. Thank you AIFD® Foundation for the support, guidance and tireless efforts your leadership brings to the lives of so many.
“The $10,000 contribution brings the Floriology® Institute Fund powered by BloomNet® closer to endowment. This corporate named fund, the first of its kind to be placed within the AIFD Foundation, endorses our mission. Once endowed, scholarships will provide countless opportunities into perpetuity for “A Lifetime of Learning”. The AIFD Foundation Board of Trustees joins me in expressing our appreciation.” — AIFD Foundation CEO Lynn Lary McLean AIFD
