Step 1. Select Your Member Type

ONLA has several membership options for business owners, professional individuals, students and educators. Review the options below and select one. Questions? Call Roni Petersen at 614.899.1195.


Company Membership

Open to companies (proprietorships, partnerships, corporations or other business organizations) engaged in the nursery or landscape business or closely allied to the nursery or landscape industry. Businesses can be within or outside the state of Ohio. Only one active Company membership is permitted per company.

Dues range from $210 to $570 per year, based on annual gross dollar volume of all sales for the previous fiscal year.


Company Branch / Multi-Location

Open to branches or multiple locations operating publicly under the same name as a Company member. Branch/Multi-Location members are entitled to the benefits of Company members except the right to vote. Each location should complete a separate membership application. 

Dues are $50 per location


Professional Individual Membership

Membership is available to individuals:

  • Currently employed by a Company member
  • Full-time employees providing green goods-related services (e.g. landscaping or grounds maintenance) for a non-member company, or a company that is not directly engaged in the green goods industry.

Dues are $90. Note: If you own or operate your own business, you must apply for a Company Membership. 


Student Membership

Open to any college or high school student pursuing a career in horticulture, who does not meet the criteria for a Company or Professional Individual membership. 

No dues are required. An optional $45 fee to receive print subscription to The Buckeye magazine.


Affiliate Membership

Individuals who are not directly engaged in the green industry, but whose positions in education, research, and public office permit a close relationship with the industry, may be granted an affiliate membership by a majority vote of the ONLA board of directors. Individuals who are interested in an affiliate membership must be nominated by a Company member, with a nomination letter accompanying their application.

No dues are required. An optional $45 fee to receive print subscription to The Buckeye magazine.
