Central Arkansas Rose Society Membership

Membership in the Central Arkansas Rose Society (CARS) is open to those who wish to learn more about roses and enjoy the benefits of the newsletter, group purchasing, our annual rose show, and great programs. If you wish to be a member, please complete the Membership Application and send with a check in the amount of $15.00 to:

Karen Hicks, Treasurer
Central Arkansas Rose Society
5160 Bay Town
Conway, AR 72034-8299

Membership is renewed annually upon remittance of dues.

There are two Membership Application forms - a Microsoft Word version and a PDF version. Both versions can be filled out on your computer. If you have Microsoft Word on your computer or if you wish to print off the forma and fill it by hand, please use the Microsoft Word version. Depending on your browser, clicking the link for the PDF version may open it in your browser and it can fill it out and then print it off.  If that does not happen, you will need to download the file to your computer and fill it out there.  To fill out the PDF version on your computer, you must have the Adobe Acrobat Reader application.   If you don't have Adobe Acrobat Reader, you can download a free copy here (this link opens in a new window - just close the window when you are done to return to the Central Arkansas Rose Society web pages).

American Rose Society Membership

Membership in the American Rose Society is a most valuable resource to everyone interested in roses. The bi-monthly magazine is full-color and while it is similar to the popular gardening magazine on the store shelves it is devoted to ROSES. You will receive reduced or free entry into reciprocal gardens in the US and have access to the Gardens of the American Rose Society (a treat for all rosarians). You may join ARS as a full member or try the “trial” as described below.

Regular Membership - $49 annually
Joint Membership (two in the same household) - $62 annually
Trial Memberships - All benefits of regular membership for 4 months
  • New CARS members - Free
  • Existing CARS members but not ARS members - $10
