Field Sessions

The 2007 ASLA Annual Meeting & EXPO will be ASLA’s greenest meeting yet! !

Annual meeting attendees can do their part to offset their personal carbon footprint as well. ASLA has partnered with TerraPass to provide meeting attendees a convenient option to offset their carbon dioxide emissions as they travel to and from the meeting in San Francisco.

Since air travel is a major contributor to carbon dioxide emissions, annual meeting attendees are encouraged to offset their travel arrangements (flights, rental cars, etc.) by purchasing a TerraPass.

Help make the 2007 meeting our greenest yet! Purchase your TerraPass today!
