About IGIA

Founded in 1925, the Illinois Green Industry Association (IGIA) is one of the oldest agricultural organizations in the state.

We work on behalf of our members to promote and protect nursery and greenhouse growers, retail garden centers, landscape professionals and other green industry partners. Our mission is to help strengthen the position of our member businesses by offering industry certification, distinctive opportunities for education and networking, legislative and regulatory representation, and other member services.

We are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, managed daily by a dedicated full-time Executive Director, and powered by volunteer committees
