The Spring 2007 newsletter focuses on our membership with the first annual “On the Boards” issue. I would like to thank those individuals who provided project summaries and images for this issue.

Minneapolis 2006
During the ASLA national meeting in Minneapolis this past October I had the pleasure of meeting a number of our members personally. Clint Hewitt, ASLA, Associate Professor and former Associate Vice President for Physical Planning and Campus Master Planning at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities Campus, generously hosted seven of our members to a presentation of campus history and planning and a campus tour.

The 19 members who attended the Campus Planning and Design PPN meeting represented a broad cross section of professionals and shared many of their thoughts and concerns.
