ASLA Announces 2012 Chapter Licensure and Advocacy Grants
Licensure & Advocacy Grant Program provides financial assistance to chapters
that are working to promote and defend practice act licensure across the United
States. The program also assists
chapters that are active (or plan to be active) in any ASLA state or local
advocacy efforts, including defending the right to practice from local
challenges. Past awardees have used the grants
to help defray lobbying costs when advocating for a licensure upgrade, create
outreach and advocacy materials to distribute to decision makers in their
state, and advocated for landscape architects to be included in stormwater
management & environmental resource permits. Applications
are no later than 5:00pm EDT on Friday October 14, 2011.
