Access to EXPO education offerings are included in your meeting registration, and PPN membership is not required to attend that PPN’s meeting or EXPO tours – all are welcome! Already a member of one PPN, but curious about another? Or not sure which PPN to choose (all ASLA members receive one PPN membership for free)? You are welcome to attend as many PPN events as you like! 

Keep an eye on The Field as we highlight ASLA Annual Meeting and EXPO events through the start of the meeting on October 19.  

We look forward to seeing you in Philadelphia!
