February 2018 Print

President's Message

February is a busy month as we make final preparations for the 2018 WI ASLA Annual Spring Conference.  The Spring Conference Committee and Awards Committee are working extremely hard this year to ensure the program is the best to date; highlighting the best of landscape architecture in Wisconsin and how landscape architects are critical to protecting the health, safety, and welfare of the public. If you’re not able to attend the Spring Conference, there are other opportunities to engage with fellow landscape architects and design professionals at the 2018 Spring Social & Awards Reception or by donating to the 2018 WI ASLA Silent Auction which supports student scholarships and the Student ASLA Chapter. We look forward to seeing you February 28th and March 1st!
