The Pacific Central Judging Center provides orchid enthusiasts access to the American Orchid Society system of awards.
It is the aim of the American Orchid Society to provide timely judging sessions such that "no bloom should fade" without the opportunity of being considered for an AOS award. Therefore, the Pacific Central Judging Center convenes twice a month, once in Oakland and once in San Francisco.
AOS judging is also available at shows organized by AOS-affiliate societies and at Pacific Central outreach events. For current information please visit the Pacific Central web site or the Pacific Central Facebook page.
