Chair Science & Education Committee

1. Opening by the chairman, AIPH president Mr. Vic Krahn and approval of the agenda The Chairman welcomed everyone, including Professor Zhang and Maria Wallin. Mr. Krahn told Board members that we need to work to keep relevant to growers and all that we are engaged in. He is excited about the new Expo Conference and this helps us keep relevant. Also we’re working now to our Strategic Plan so a lot has been put in place.

2. A. Minutes

Minutes of the Board meeting 15 September, 2014, Qingdao (annex 1) – These had already been approved by email. This was noted by the Board.

- Matters arising- none

3. Incoming items, announcements, correspondence. 3.1. Open membership fees 2014 – T Briercliffe reported that fees are outstanding from COHA and JardinSuisse. Note: subsequently found that COHA had paid. T Edwards said that he has good contact with JardinSuisse through ENA and that he would pass

this contact to T Briercliffe to stimulate more engagement with AIPH. T Briercliffe also informed

this contact to T Briercliffe to stimulate more engagement with AIPH. T Briercliffe also informed the Board that Victor Santacruz (CNLA) had encouraged JardinSuisse to participate during a recent International Garden Centre Association meeting in

Switzerland. Regarding the entry of members on the new AIPH website it was suggested by H Kong that only the actual member should be listed. T Briercliffe agreed but noted that in many countries the organisations underneath the member were more widely known and we do not want to lose our public association with them. It was agreed that we should include reference to these organisations but more as a sub-level on the website. V Krahn suggested that we could include a paragraph summary for each member and include this information there.

3.2. Full Membership application – AmericanHort, USA (annex 2a, 2b and 2c). Board were pleased to receive this application and agreed to recommend approval to General Meeting. All in favour.

3.3. Full Membership enquiries – T Briercliffe updated the Board on current prospects - Bord Bia (Ireland), Floriculture Products producers and Exporters Association (Sri Lanka), Val’hor (France). Work is ongoing to engage with each of these. T Briercliffe also had the opportunity to give a presentation about AIPH at a recent ENA meeting and ENA members have subsequently been contacted and invited to the Spring Meeting. G Heungens has contact with a French organization through CopaCogeca and would follow this up for AIPH.

3.4. Affiliate Membership application – The new Affiliate Membership category was promoted during IPM Essen. Under the AIPH Charter Affiliate membership can be approved by the Board without having to go to General Meeting. Applicants were MPS, Netherlands, and Bavaria, UAE. MPS application (supported by Dutch member NTR) – proposed W Stensson, Seconded

K Chung. Approved

Bavaria application – T Briercliffe explained that there was no AIPH member in UAE so

the application was supported by references, i.e. details of membership of Chamber of Commerce. K Tambayong suggested that we need more information on verifying quality

of affiliate members. Chamber of commerce membership was not adequate. W

Stensson suggested that we have the ability to terminate Affiliate membership if deemed appropriate in future. It was suggested that we should write to them with lists of do’s and

don’ts, i.e. a Code of Conduct for Affiliate members. On this basis the approval of membership for Bavaria was proposed by W Stensson, Seconded by B Oosterom.

Approved

Agree to send letter detailing expectations of membership and acceptance for them to agree. All in favour.

3.5. Affiliate Membership enquiries – T Briercliffe reported on interest from the following companies which would be pursued: Fleuroselect (Netherlands), Guernsey Clematis (Guernsey), Floramedia (Europe), IPM Essen (Germany)

K Tambayong informed the Board about her efforts to get Singapore into membership.

She has met with Landscape Industry Association of Singapore (LIAS) who would like to join however, plans to hold a congress there this year have had to be postponed as the dates do not suit LIAS. K Tambayong said that with more time they will come on board and that the Singapore parks authority, NParks are also supportive. V Krahn recommended inviting LIAS to the Green City conference in Vancouver to engage them with AIPH.

4. Financial update

4.1. Update on legal case against Mr. Langeslag

V Krahn updated the Board. Following the negative result last year from the Dutch courts

V Krahn updated the Board. Following the negative result last year from the Dutch

courts AIPH was permitted to appeal. The appeal was prepared by Diusens lawyers. To ensure that all arguments were fully covered V Krahn and B Oosterom met with

another legal firm in November and it was agreed that they should audit the appeal prepared by Diusens. This was done and the Diusens work was endorsed. The appeal was due to be heard in January but it was delayed. The judge was supposed to reach a verdict by the end of February but this will now be 29 March. We do not yet know the outcome.

K Tambayong asked what the consequences would be of the outcome. V Krahn said

that this depends on the outcome. K Tambayong advised caution in not spending too much more pursuing this. V Krahn confirmed that there would be no further spending on

this issue without Board approval.

4.2.

Bank account status

T

Briercliffe informed the Board that AIPH had finally opened a bank account with

Barclays in the UK. Within this account we will run a Euro and Sterling (GBP) account.

4.3.

2014

P&L, Balance Sheet and Explanatory Notes

 

T

Briercliffe introduced the draft 2014 P&L and Balance Sheet to the Board along with

the explanatory notes which were appreciated. T Briercliffe explained the foreign

currency exchange losses figure. T Edwards suggested that we could seek to reduce this loss by hedging money and buying currency forwards. H Kong asked whether we could pay UK bills in Euros but it was pointed out that this would still be converted to the exchange rate and UK companies would not take the currency risk on this. H Kong asked whether this risk could be shared with the supplier. W Stensson advised that forward buying of currency is usually only done for large transactions and that the amounts discussed here would probably be too small to make this worth considering. A Treer suggested increasing the amount of income gained in GBP. It was agreed that when large sums are being billed (e.g. expo gate fees) then AIPH should consider the most favourable currency for that transaction. Board asked for a more detailed breakdown on the income and expenditure from the

2014 Green City Conference in London.

4.4.

2015 P&L and Balance Sheet to date

T

Briercliffe introduced the reports to end of January 2015. There were no comments on

 

this.

4.5.

Updated long term best and worst case forecasts and Income Generation Plan

T Briercliffe introduced the different forecasts which were provided to the Board to flag

issues to consider when planning the 2016 budget.

K Tambayong suggested that costs could be reduced by making more use of members

within a region rather than always sending the President or SG.

reduce carbon footprint. W Stensson pointed out that the ‘worst case’ forecast still assumes new income from IGOTY and gate fees. A true worst case forecast should allow for these not coming through. H Kong supported the comment by W Stensson and also proposed evaluating SG performance against financial income success and rewarding accordingly.

T Briercliffe mentioned that there will also be new income from the FloraHolland project

but as this has only just been discovered there are no numbers included for this.

This would also help

5. Report of the Secretary General (annex 7)

T Briercliffe proposed taking the report as read. He referred to discussions with Floralies. G

Heungens explained the relationship between Floralies of Nantes and Belgium.

V Krahn asked the Board whether the SG Report covered the information they wanted to

see. K Tambayong suggested it should include more pictures and also more information

from members on what they are doing for AIPH in their own countries. A Treer

from members on what they are doing for AIPH in their own countries. A Treer noted that he was very happy with the reporting.

6. AIPH Governance

6.1. Election process for Vice President

T Briercliffe outlined the election process to take place during the General Meeting and

informed the Board that only one nomination had been received – Professor Zhang (CFA)

6.2. Re-election process for Board members

T Briercliffe explained the process of re-election for Board members. During the General

Meeting W Stensson and A Treer would stand down and be put forward for re-election to

the Board.

6.3. Regional representation on AIPH Board (annex 9)

T Briercliffe introduced Annex 9 which had been prepared following the

recommendations made at the last Board meeting in Qingdao. Board commented on the proposal.

S Wada – Region 4 (N America) is too small. W Stensson suggested including Central

America, down to Panama.

H Kong challenged the need for having regional representation and highlighted that

keeping key experience and skills on the Board is more important. She also questioned the need to separate SE Asia from Asia and putting SE Asia and Oceania in the same

region. K Tambayong said there was a good reason for SE Asia to be a specific region.

W Stensson noted that we need to formalize the regional election procedure within our

Regulations. H Kong suggested that AIPH can provide certified documents when any AIPH member from any country or region needs to apply for funding support from local

governments.

H Kong recommended leaving scope for the Board to be able to co-opt someone with

particular skills/benefits to the association.

V Krahn raised the issue of whether we need to specify what part of the world Vice

Presidents should come from or whether this is best left to Board discretion.

W

Stensson suggested that we add a statement to the Regulations that says the Board

is

encouraged to think about an east/west split when making appointments.

S

Wada commented that Vice Presidents should be at least from different regions. T

Briercliffe urged the Board not to create too many rules that may later be regretted.

T Edwards said that we should state that the Board is encouraged to create a

geographically balanced mix. Therefore not too prescriptive.

H Kong suggested that the SG be asked to propose new Regulations for the election of

both regional representatives and committee chairs.

V Krahn suggested that a decision on this could be formulated as follows:

Motion to propose a new regional structure, revised according to the opinions of the

Board, to the General Meeting in Congress 2015 including the change that Central America will be included with North America. Proposed T Edwards, seconded W Stensson. All in favour.

V Krahn proposed that new regulations for elections within regions and for committee

chairs be prepared for the next meeting. All in favour.

7. AIPH Strategy and Brand

7.1. AIPH Brand and core statement (annex 10)

T Briercliffe presented the conclusion of this work and final brand along with proposed

roll-out plan.

S Utlulig noted that the new logo looks similar to the Apple iphone photos icon.

S Utlulig noted that the new logo looks similar to the Apple iphone photos icon. T

Briercliffe said that this had been noted before and checked with the designers. It had been agreed that it was sufficiently different not to be a concern.

K Tambayong said that she did not really like the Green City sub-brand and asked if it

could it be expanded to open up more. T Briercliffe noted that this was a section of the

main brand and if you changed it then that link would not work. W Stensson suggested that rather than a separate design for Green City you could just make the whole flower shape green for Green City work. A Treer suggested that maybe Green City did not

need a separate brand at this stage but this might be useful for the future. S Wada suggested that the black and white version of the logo seemed a bit harsh and maybe it could be more greys than blacks.

T Briercliffe explained that he had been in discussion with a trademark lawyer to look

into protecting the new brand. However, due to the number of countries where the brand would have to be registered the cost was prohibitive (i.e. over 150,000 euro). T Edwards suggested that we could just register it in the countries where there will be an expo and we should start with Turkey. A Treer suggested we just get it trademarked in

UK. W Stensson suggested building the cost of registration into the expo fees to organisers. K Tambayong said that she would get an alternative registration quote within Indonesia as she thinks she may be able to achieve this at a lower cost.

7.2. AIPH Strategic Plan – Action Plan Update (Annex 11)

T Briercliffe updated the Board on progress against Strategy Actions. The update was

taken as read.

7.3. Region VI Secretariat Support

T Briercliffe informed the Board that V Krahn, B Oosterom and T Briercliffe had met with

Ms Hongmei Liu during the FloraHolland Trade Fair in November 2014. Ms. Liu is a grower with nurseries in China and Germany. During this meeting Ms. Liu offered to provide help to AIPH as she believes in the importance of the association. Following that meeting T Briercliffe contacted H Kong to suggest that AIPH appoint Ms Liu as a Regional Manager for Region VI, reporting to the SG. This proposal was not supported by CFA and subsequently Ms. Liu withdrew her offer to work with AIPH in this capacity.

It was noted by V Krahn and T Briercliffe that Ms Liu had some particular skills in relation

to her knowledge of the Chinese and European nursery industries and these may prove

valuable to AIPH in future. It was agreed that in the event that Ms Liu could provide valuable support on a particular issue or project then she could be engaged to do this by agreement between AIPH and CFA.

8.

Committees

8.1. Review of Committee work plans and budgets (annex 12) Green City Committee – K Tambayong asked about the status of the Terms of Reference and these need to be updated. For example she would like to see them include a statement that AIPH will include one conference and one exchange platform each year. We also need to include reference to the health benefits of Green Cities. V Krahn questioned whether ‘green’ is the right term to use. K Tambayong agreed this should be reviewed. V Krahn suggested that the Green City Working Group become a virtual group as exists with Novelty Protection Committee. Novelty Protection Committee – B Oosterom updated the Board on the work on EU implementation of Nagoya protocol and the extra funding raised from members and outside sources. Also the EU is deciding on whether to adopt patent laws which we think is harmful to the sector. B Oosterom requested that AIPH should be an observer to CPVO. This will cost 10,000 euro per year. Would like to fund one third from members and other orgs, one third with money saved from the NP Budget and one third from FloraHolland. V Krahn asked whether it will affect this year? Yes. This would involve

seeking to raise additional funds from members again and half would be required this year.

seeking to raise additional funds from members again and half would be required this year. G Heungens asked whether AIPH would be looking to collect money from all members or just the SPG. B Oosterom said all members would be invited to contribute.

T Edwards suggested getting companies that would benefit to become affiliate members

and use the income from this to support this activity. V Krahn pointed out that if funding

requests are being sent to members then these need to be explained very clearly and

must come through the SG. Board members agreed to this request on the basis that it will require no further financial input from AIPH beyond the existing budget. The financial situation will be reviewed at the next meeting.

8.2. Terms of reference Committee chairs should ensure that Committee Terms of Reference are updated ahead

of the annual congress.

8.3. Relevant issues for the committees- no further issues raised.

8.4. Science and Education (annex 13)

T Briercliffe summarised the discussions held during the meeting of the new AIPH

Science Group, held at IPM Essen on 28 January 2015. As part of this AIPH members will be surveyed to find out the key areas of research where they feel that an international growers conference would be most beneficial. If a draft programme can be

pulled together then this could be held in association with the ISHS congress in Istanbul

in 2018. Also the group is looking at developing a database of researchers operating in

horticultural science along with their areas of interest. The group plans to meet again at

IPM 2016.

8.5. New Projects (annex 14)

V Krahn outlined a proposal for a procedure for members who wish to initiate new

projects/initiatives within AIPH. V Krahn explained that this form should be used when

requesting work from the secretariat or additional funds. W Stensson asked what the rules should be for using this and when it should be submitted. He suggested that funding requests should be circulated to the Board six weeks before a meeting. T Edwards suggested that a budget timeline is circulated to the Board. Board agreed on the adoption of this procedure.

9. Statistical yearbook

9.1. Update on sales of the 2014 edition and report on plans for online sales and the 2015

edition

A Treer updated the Board following the recent working group meeting with Hannover

University and Union Fleurs at IPM Essen on 30 January 2015. We are continuing

discussion on how to make the PDF available but still protecting it from being circulated

to those that have not paid for it. There is no clear solution on this yet. A Treer said that

the current pricing was being discussed. Currently the CD costs 110 euro + VAT; we would look to increase this but make the report also available in sections. The possibility

of a special rate for students has been discussed but it was felt that students have no

money so any price will be too high. He informed the Board that CD format is not the future and that the next edition will only be available as an online download from the

AIPH website.

In terms of content A Treer said that we would like more data codes for categorising the

trade data and that he hoped B Oosterom could assist us in accessing more detailed information from the Dutch auctions. We also want to fill the gaps for countries where we lack information and suggested that ENA could maybe help with this too.

T Briercliffe reminded members to ensure that they completed the survey that was

circulated recently. G Heungens said that Belgium carry out an annual survey of

members and he was happy to share this.

10. International Grower of the Year

10.1. Launch of new IGOTY competition

Grower of the Year 10.1. Launch of new IGOTY competition T Briercliffe updated the Board on

T Briercliffe updated the Board on discussions with FCI and IPM regarding the plan to

hold the next IGOTY Awards Gala Dinner during IPM 2016 in January 2016. This was welcomed by the Board. T Edwards suggested that we stop using the existing ‘rose’ logo and replace with our own. He also suggested selling tables at the dinner for countries. Regarding categories A Treer suggested combining nursery stock and trees and adding cut flowers. G Heungens suggested making the categories cut flowers, outdoor produced, undercover produced, young plants. G Heungens said that we should consider some form of support to potential winners to incentivize participation and maybe keep the subsidy for travel.

Q

Zhang asked whether the competition includes fruit and vegetables. V Krahn said that

it

does not but this is something we need to consider for the longer term.

T

Briercliffe said that this would be presented to members at the General Meeting but with

modified categories following this discussion.

11. Exhibitions

11.1. Revision of the regulations on exhibitions (annex 15)

T Briercliffe introduced the proposed new Regulations for Exhibitions. These draft

regulations take on board points raised during the last meeting of the Marketing Committee as well as some new ideas. These draft regulations will be proposed to the

Marketing Committee on 18 March 2015 but agreement on a final version is not expected until the annual congress. Comments on Annex 15:

Section 1 – K Tambayong suggests ‘increase global appreciation for the use of plants’ rather than ‘appreciation for horticulture’. Also should include objective to improve local economy (through tourism, etc) Section 3 – T Edwards suggested that the proposed new 2% gate fee for A1 expos should say ‘up to 2% as determined by AIPH’. This gives flexibility to AIPH to add further controls (and costs) if deemed necessary to make the expo successful but avoid penalizing those already experienced and established in expos. Section 4 – T Edwards suggested that experts should be used for site inspections and K Tambayong suggested that all Board members should be given the opportunity to take part in these. B Oosterom suggested that if site inspections are held in the four years before an expo then these should be done by experts (e.g. engineers, etc). W Stensson agreed with this and suggested that this cost be incorporated in the fees. Section 8 – Regarding the provision of a AIPH staff member on site if was suggested that we should have the option of requiring this depending on the view of the application. Section 9 – Fees. It was suggested that a fee called a ‘gate fee’ cannot be charged before gate income has been gained. T Edwards suggested that we call it a ‘license fee’ and we make this a fixed fee, not linked with visitor numbers or gate income. This could be different for each category or based on predicted numbers/income. The Board were keen that we further investigate this proposal. H Kong said that whatever is agreed it is important to have this detailed within a contractual agreement with the organisers.

K Tambayong made the point that promotion of Green City principals should be

incorporated. 11.2.Guide for Expo Organisers (annex 16)

T Briercliffe had circulated the final draft of the Expo Guide. This was welcomed by the

Board.

11.3.Expo Antalya 2016 – progress concerns (annex 17) T Briercliffe and B Oosterom presented their

11.3.Expo Antalya 2016 – progress concerns (annex 17)

T Briercliffe and B Oosterom presented their concerns about the progress at Antalya

following recent visits. T Briercliffe explained that we had only just received a response to

the letter that was sent in December 2014. It was felt that a change in leadership and management at the Expo Agency would improve the situation. 11.4.Expo Antalya 2016 – AIPH communications with Antalya Expo Agency

O Bagdatlioglu explained to the Board his disappointment that the December report was

sent to the Antalya Board without his final approval. However, since this time the matter had been discussed with the SG and a new working arrangement agreed. O Bagdatlioglu said that AIPH needs to be more active in insisting on expo inspections which are very important for stimulating activity. He also supported the use of professional inspectors.

At this point T Briercliffe raised a concern from the organisers of Floriade Almere 2022. They had been sent a contract to sign which referred to compliance with the Regulations that would be agreed at the Annual Congress 2015. Almere said that they could not sign an open-ended contract like that. The Board agreed to leave it to the Executive Committee to develop a suitable contract for Almere.

11.5. AIPH Exhibition Tours

T Briercliffe informed the Board that he was facilitating a meeting between Inbound China

(branch of Wendy Wu Travel) and the Tangshan organisers as they were proposing to be the preferred travel agent for the Expo. If successful then AIPH would take a commission.

12. Preparation of future meetings. 12.1. Proposals Congress 2015 – options – South Africa (Cape Town), Italy (Milan), Netherlands. K Tambayong requested that we review the comparative costs of these options before a decision was made. That was agreed. Spring 2016 – Vancouver, Canada Congress 2016 – Antalya, Turkey (proposed joint event with Union Fleurs) Spring 2017 – no proposal Congress 2017 – Holambra, Brazil

13. Contacts with related organizations. See Secretary General report (annex 7).

14. Other matters There were no further matters

15. Closure V Krahn thanked Board members for their participation.

Motion to adjourn from T Edwards, all in favour.

About HE.P.M.EA

After the successful participation in FLORIADE 2012 (Venlo , Holland), the most important nursery stock and plant material production companies in Greece, decided to establish an organization to promote their products and to do lobbying in international organizations with relevant subject and activities.

In January 2013, Hellenic Plant Material Exporters Association(HE.P.M.E.A)(ESEFY in Greek language) had the first meeting and in July 2013 is legally established and authorized. During this period, a lot of research and efforts in other markets (such us Iran, Turkey, Ukraine, Russia, Holland, Italy , Qatar and Kenya) and participation in the 1 st round table of E.N.A (European Nursery stock Association) (Catania, 25-27 June 2013), gave a remarkable potential to HE.P.M.E.A efforts to start to expand the exports of plant materials , with important results already.

The companies and cooperatives that are members of HE.P.M.E.A cover an important range of varieties of plant materials such us:

-garden plants (boxwood, hibiscus, photinia etc)

-mediterranean plants (olives, figs, herbs etc)

-subtropical climate plants (citrus, kalamodin, bougainvillea, polygala, callistemon etc)

-indoors and tropical plants (ficus, orchids, ardisias , small plants in special complexes pots etc)

-fruit trees (for all climates)

-north climate conifers (cedars, abies, cupressus etc)

-splendid and unique Gardenias compact (traditional from Mountain Pelion)

-special architecture trees (gnarled trunk olives, platanus etc)

-cactus and succulents (more than 800 species)

-turf grass varieties (for all climates)

-water plants (nuphars, bog plants, iris etc)

-palms (rarity Phoenix theophrasti)

-classical and traditional rose varieties (more than 1000)

-cut flowers (Proteaceae family, unique cultivation in mediterranean region)

-seedlings of bio-produced vegetable and herb varieties with special techniques

Also, among the members are the most important Greek manufacture in pots, special editions about gardening and landscape and a worldwide logistic platform about plants.

Annex 4a Affiliate Membership application from Val hor, France

AIPH Board Meeting, 19 October 2015

To AIPH Board:

I am pleased to say that Val'hor (France) would like to become a member of AIPH. As we heard in Paris they are heavily involved in promoting the industry in France, especially through their Green City project and other promotional initiatives. They are particularly keen to participate in AIPH work and information sharing in this area.

However, due to the nature of their organisation they are not able to join as a Full Member. Although they do meet the criteria from an AIPH perspective they cannot do this from their own governance perspective. The true growers association in France is FNPHP. Val'hor have discussed AIPH membership with FNPHP but this is a small and struggling organisation that does not have the time or funds to support a commitment to AIPH membership. Val'hor would like to be involved with AIPH but cannot formally represent the interests of French growers so would not be permitted to take this role. Val'hor is an organisation funded through a levy (tax) on the industry which it uses to fund its promotional initiatives.

Therefore, Val'hor will apply for Affiliate Membership of AIPH as this is the only route they are permitted to follow from their own governance perspective. They have the same arrangement with Union Fleurs where they are also Affiliate Members. Their request to join as an affiliate is not related to the cost of membership but is because of the role they play in the French horticulture industry.

I propose to the Board that we should accept Val'hor as an Affiliate Member of AIPH for the reasons outlined above.

Regards

Tim Briercliffe Secretary General AIPH International Association of Horticultural Producers
