For more than 100 years, the American Society of Landscape Architects has promoted the landscape architecture profession and advanced the practice through advocacy, education, communication, and fellowship. Folowing are some quick links to ASLA National’s resources

ASLA National Professional Practice Networks (PPNs):

Membership to Professional Practice Networks is open to all members of ASLA. There are 18 PPNs that cover a wide-range of practice areas. They provide excellent opportunities for professionals interested in the same areas of practice to exchange information, learn about current practices and research, and network with each other.

Each PPN contributes to The Field, a blog that gives members a place to exchange information, learn about recent work and research, and share their thoughts about current happenings.

2013 Annual Meeting and EXPO:

More than 6,000 landscape architecture professionals and students from across the U.S. and around the world will gather in Boston, November 15-18, to enjoy the fellowship of our profession, reconnect with the fundamental elements of design, and earn professional development hours.

Membership:

As the national professional association for landscape architects, ASLA has more than 18,000 members and 48 chapters, representing all 50 states, U.S. territories, and 68 countries around the world. ASLA members enjoy many benefits and discounts. Two of the most important benefits are ASLA’s efforts to raise awareness of the profession and legislative advocacy on issues that matter most to the profession.
