Register early for the most important landscape architecture event of the year. Landscape architecture professionals from around the globe will gather September 18–21 in Chicago for what promises to be the largest event in ASLA history. The theme is Beyond Sustainability: Regenerating Places and People.
One of the best values for busy landscape architecture professionals, the ASLA Annual Meeting and EXPO will feature more than 120 education sessions, field sessions, and tours over four days. Full registration offers access to more than 20 professional development hours; more hours may be obtained by participating in ticketed tours or field sessions. The average attendee spends approximately $1,500 for registration, hotel, and transportation. These and other costs associated with the meeting are tax deductible for industry professionals.*
Studies show that during tough economic times, professional development and networking help firms compete for work. Many landscape architecture firms hold staff retreats during the annual meeting or reward staff for a job well done. If you would be interested in hosting a staff retreat during the 2009 annual meeting, please contact Meetings and Special Programs Director Joyce DePass at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Changing leaves, mild temperatures, and innovative design make Chicago a perfect location for landscape architecture professionals to assemble. Chicago is regarded as a top business travel destination, and September is the best time of year to visit according to www.tripadvisor.com.
Don’t miss this opportunity to network with colleagues from across the country and around the world.
