Dear ASLA, As a public awareness initiative pertaining to our profession, why does ASLA not advertise and promote the profession on NPR and other radio venues like AIA does?
tpoltrack@asla.org July 3, 2013 11:42 AM
We are a much smaller organization with a fraction of the budget of AIA. I know, because I used to work there. In addition, their 250+ components often fund NPR and other ad options independently at the local level. A few of our 49 chapters also do so, but again, to a much lesser extent. That said, we work with NPR whenever the opportunity presents itself in other ways.
