Advocacy Day 2016

ASLA Advocacy Day 2016
 

Today, many landscape architects are saying iAdvocate – Now, it's your turn! Join the thousands of ASLA advocates who have travelled from across the country to Capitol Hill to advocate for policies important to landscape architects. During your congressional visits, you will raise the visibility of the profession with legislators and key staff, and educate them on the many ways that landscape architects provide solutions to some of the problems facing our communities.

LEARNING THE ISSUES
(Members Only)  

Whether you are a seasoned advocate or new to meeting with legislators on Capitol Hill, ASLA’s knowledgeable government affairs team will provide you with the information, tools, and materials to make the most of your congressional meetings.
