2008 ASLA Annual Meeting & EXPO

Howard Perry, FASLA, ASLA PresidentNow more than ever, the landscape architecture profession is leading the process that connects environmental, social, and economic health: green infrastructure. Our annual meeting will celebrate the contributions of landscape architects in the design, planning, management, and research of the life support system for the planet. Join us in Philadelphia as we share principles and practices to link landscapes and communities through green infrastructure.

This year’s event offers the unprecedented opportunity to earn 31.5 professional development hours (PDH) through 120 exceptional education sessions, field sessions, and tours. We have recruited the very best experts from the U.S. and abroad to serve as our faculty. The ASLA EXPO—the largest product display in the industry—will feature nearly 450 exhibitors, many of them new this year. We’ll recognize current and future leaders of the profession with honors and awards. We’ll connect with our colleagues from across the country and around the world at special events throughout the weekend. And as our legacy to Philadelphia, we’ll introduce area ACE Mentor Program high school students to careers in landscape architecture in continuation of our “Each One, Reach One” campaign.

Special thanks to Edward T. McMahon, Hon. ASLA, and to Island Press for allowing ASLA to use the book title Green Infrastructure: Linking Landscapes and Communities as the theme for our meeting. It’s inspiring reading and you may purchase a signed copy through the registration form for pickup at the annual meeting in the ASLA/ULI bookstore. Sales of the book support The Conservation Fund’s Green Infrastructure Program.

See you in Philadelphia!

Designing a More Sustainable Meeting

ASLA continues to reduce the carbon footprint of the annual meeting and 2008 will be the greenest meeting yet. The official meeting hotels and the Pennsylvania Convention Center are located within walking distance of each other, eliminating the need for shuttle buses. The hotels, convention center, show decorator, transportation company, and other vendors with whom ASLA contracts services must demonstrate a commitment to sustainable practices. ASLA’s printed materials, signage, and decorations are recycled, recyclable, and printed with soy ink. The meeting handouts will be distributed electronically. Meeting attendees may do their part by traveling to the meeting via Amtrak, purchasing a TerraPass, or arranging air travel through GoodShop (see Travel and Hotel Information).
