Wholesale Florist & Florist Supplier Association (WF&FSA)
WF&FSA is a dynamic business organization uniquely positioned to provide more than 840 members with the information, services and support needed to remain competitive in today's constantly changing market. WF&FSA's current roster member includes wholesaler-distributors, hardgoods manufacturers, domestic growers and shippers, hardgoods importers, fresh floral product importers, transportation providers, sales representatives and other service companies. Created in 1926, WF&FSA continues to evolve as the floral industry, its markets and customers change. Its mission, however, remains unchanged: to provide networking and business opportunities to wholesale distributors and floral suppliers.

A group of wholesalers from across the country came to Chicago on May 25, 2006 to help WF&FSA. They spent the day discussing the role of WF&FSA today.
