President's Message


Dear Members,

It is only two weeks until we all get together at the WI ASLA Spring Conference!  I look forward to reconnecting with all of you and hearing about all the fun and exciting things happening around the state.  

I want to remind everyone who has not already registered, that there is still time to do so before February 17th.  Also, we are now seeking Firm Partnerships.  Have you ever wondered how your firm or landscape architecture practice could get involved with WI ASLA?  Now is your chance!  Funds raised from the Firm Partnerships directly benefit the WI ASLA student scholarship initiative and other advocacy-related events.  For more information or to sign up, please fill out and send back the form attached here.  We look forward to recognizing all of our Firm Partners at the conference in just a few weeks!

With that have a great February and see everyone on February 17th and 18th.

ASLA Partnerships

ASLA announced last week that it has secured strategic partnerships with Land8 Media and the LABASH Conference. The partnerships will expand the audience for landscape architects and landscape architecture.  The Communications & Marketing team refined communications to key ASLA constituencies via mail messages; drafted and issued press releases; and developed a social media campaign regarding the new partnership.

Library of Congress Partnership

The Library of Congress will now archive the society’s Professional Award-winning projects. It’s the first time that collections representing the international landscape architecture profession will be archived by a U.S. federal institution. ASLA collaborated with the Library of Congress to draft and issue a joint press release announcing the Library’s archiving of ASLA Professional Award-winning projects, starting in 2022.
