Staging AHS Accredited Daylily Shows
The American Hemerocallis Society mission statement includes the desire to provide the general public with education and exposure to the daylily. To help with this mission, members and local daylily groups choose to host a daylily exhibition show and are proud to have their daylilies on display for the public’s viewing pleasure. An AHS Accredited Show may be given by a local group when they meet the requirements outlined in Chapter 5 of the AHS Exhibitions Handbook.

How To Get AHS Shows Accredited
At least eight to ten weeks before the show date, the Application for AHS Show Accreditation forms must be requested from the AHS Exhibitions’ Chair or downloaded from the links below. These give the name of the Show Chair, the date, the time, and the place of the show. The Application for AHS Show Accreditation is to be completed and returned to the AHS Exhibitions’ Chair at least six weeks prior to the show date. A tentative schedule must also be sent at this time.
A final show report must be sent to the AHS Exhibitions’ Chair within two weeks after the show. A show is NOT fully accredited until the Final Report and all required judges’ ballots, tabulations, and forms have been received and until tabulations have been verified by the AHS Exhibitions’ Chair or the Exhibitions Committee.
All documents that a potential show chair will need in order to apply for AHS show accreditation is shown below. All forms are provided as .pdf (Personal Document Format) files and will require Adobe® Acrobat Reader™ for viewing and printing. Adobe Acrobat Reader can be downloaded FREE from the Adobe Web site. You may also install the Acrobat Reader .pdf web browser plug in to view and print these files from within your web browser.
For printed copies of the above documents, electronic Microsoft® Word™ documents, additional questions, or additional information, please contact:

THE AHS BEST IN SHOW TABULATION PROGRAM
This is a computer program developed by Dr. Robert O. Stanton, Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science at St. John's University, and an AHS Senior Exhibition Judge. It may to be used to tabulate and determine the Best in Show at AHS accredited shows. The program is intended to eliminate the tedious, time consuming and error prone process of doing this tabulation by hand. If judges' scores are entered into the program as they are received, the Best in Show should be determined within seconds of the entry of the final set of scores. (Note: this is currently being revised by Dr. Stanton to reflect new tie-breaker; should be available by show time (May))
The program has been tested extensively and thoroughly for accuracy. The print out of the tabulation report from this program will be accepted by the AHS Show Chairman as a part of the official report.
The program is developed for computers using Microsoft Windows software. It will work "as is" on many computers with this operating system. However, some versions of Windows may require additional files for the program to work. If one gets a message indicating that a required file is missing, visit the Microsoft site: www.support.microsoft.com. Click on Downloads and Updates, then Microsoft Download Center. In the Product/Technology box, find Visual Basic and click Go. Click on the Visual Basic Service Pack 5. In the next window, click Download and follow the instructions. Once the service pack is installed, the AHS Best in Show software should work. Feel free to contact Dr. Stanton if you have any questions. Note that it is essential to check the program beforehand and not wait until the day of the show.
Download the Tabulations Program
When the software is downloaded, select the Save to file option. To run the software after it is on your computer, hit the start button and select Run. Click Browse to locate the program on your computer. Once its name, AHSBestInShowVersion2_30.exe is in the Open box, click OK to run the program. For additional help, Contact Dr. Stanton.
