The PPNs at the 2021 ASLA Conference on Landscape Architecture in Nashville

This November's conference featured two continue the conversations and twelve campfire sessions organized by ASLA’s Professional Practice Networks. These participant-focused events were opportunities to meet and network with other ASLA members and conference attendees, allowing for peer-to-peer learning and knowledge-sharing. For conference highlights from the PPNs, see The Field.
