It will be the first time in ASLA’s history that women will serve in the role of President, Incoming President and President Elect. To commemorate this special moment current ASLA President Eugenia Martin, FASLA, met with Claire Bennett at her home in Indianapolis. Watch and enjoy the discussion here. It was truly a sentimental journey “down memory lane,” in which Claire Bennett shared many insights from her career as well as her proudest moment: serving as ASLA President.
