The Arkansas Florists Association Fund
The Arkansas Florists Association Fund honoring Bill Plummer AIFD is established with an initial contribution from the Arkansas Florists Association.
As Executive Director, Bill Plummer AIFD expanded education by bringing AIFD designers to present at our annual state convention through the years and worked to encourage Arkansas Florists to expand their knowledge of floral design through AIFD offerings. His influence, while centered in Arkansas, was far-reaching. Bill was the only AIFD Charter Member outside of California. This membership, along with his influence as a prominent show presenter, opened doors to increasing awareness about a new organization called AIFD.
Bill was an original member of the AIFD Southern Chapter and chaired the Southern Symposia in Fayetteville and Hot Springs, Arkansas.
Bill’s enthusiasm about AIFD was contagious and his contacts were immense. Bill’s heartfelt greeting at each AIFD Symposium extended from the early days to the 50th Anniversary of AIFD when he greeted every person as they arrived to celebrate the art of floral design.
Bill was an AIFD Life Member and AIFD Laureate. His leadership spans decades.
Bill’s guidance continues to inspire those who knew him.
May we join together to honor a life dedicated to florists.
