The nation faces critical challenges related to heat waves, flooding, roadway casualties, and more. Landscape architects have the solutions to many such challenges. To position landscape architects to deliver these solutions, ASLA advocates for key federal and state policies. 

It’s time to make your voice heard! — time for the ASLA biennial Federal & State Legislative Priorities Survey! ASLA reaches out to all members to determine what federal and state legislative issues are important to them.  

The results of this outreach survey inform which federal and state issues the ASLA government affairs team will focus on for the upcoming two years. This coincides with one term of Congress and two state legislative sessions. It only takes five minutes to guide ASLA policy advocacy over the next two years 

ASLA members should respond before June 15 to record your stance on issues affecting the profession and your practice. Be sure to fill out this survey, then to urge Chapter members and ASLA colleagues to do the same. Thank you to all members who have already completed the survey!
