ASLA Annual Meeting: Top Five Most Important Reasons Landscape Architecture Professionals Register

The ASLA Annual Meeting and EXPO November 15-18 in Boston is only three weeks away. Our postmeeting attendee surveys reveal that the five most important reasons landscape architecture professionals register for the ASLA Annual Meeting and EXPO are:

  1. Education Session Topics:With more than 140 sessions from which to earn up to 21 professional development hours, you're sure to find topics that will enhance your practice and inspire your work.
    • 145 sessions have been approved by LA CES
    • 133 sessions have been approved by AICP
    • 142 sessions have been approved by USGBC for LEED credential maintenance
    • 67 sessions have been approved by AIA
    • 118 sessions have been approved by the New York Board for Landscape Architecture
    • 136 sessions have been approved by the Florida Board of Landscape Architecture
  2. Education Session Speakers: More than 300 amazing professional leaders will speak over the four-day meeting. Hear from Walter Hood, James Burnett, Mikyoung Kim, Christine Ten Eyck, Warren T. Byrd. Jr., Mia Lehrer, Tom Balsley, Janet Rosenberg, Tom Oslund, and many more.
  3. The City of Boston: Landscape architects love exploring the meeting host city. Field sessions offer exciting opportunities to discover the city through the eyes of landscape architects. Visit historic landscape cemeteries (FS003), view iconic plant and garden designs during the Boston Tree Party session (FS009), or see the city by bike (FS015).

  4. Networking: Wear your colors and catch up with your college roommate and professors at the College Alumni Tailgate (formerly the Alumni Reunion) featuring a record 46 schools. Celebrate the profession during the Gala, the Council of Fellows Investiture Dinner, the Awards Ceremony, the President's Dinner, and other social events.
  5. EXPO: The average attendee spends four to six hours exploring the EXPO. There will be nearly 500 exhibits for you to test-drive thousands of new and innovative products. Participate in the 16 free Learning Labs or the 18 Professional Practice Network meetings.
