ASLA Releases Call For Proposals for 2007 Annual Meeting

Sustainability Will Be Key Focus for Educational Programming


WASHINGTON, Dec. 1, 2006---The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) has released the call for education session proposals for its Annual Meeting and EXPO, October 5-9, 2007, in San Francisco. The theme of the meeting will be Designing with Nature: the Art of Balance.

Education topics are the number one reason participants attend the ASLA Annual Meeting and sustainable design is the highest rated topic area. Sustainability is also a key concern for the greater design and construction industry, owners, managers, and clients, as well as the general public at large, according to a recent national ABC News/Stanford University Poll.

Anyone may submit an education program proposal for consideration. If selected, education program session speakers will receive a complimentary registration to the 2007 ASLA Annual Meeting (over $500 value) and a $250 discount on hotel expenses. The deadline for submissions is January 10, 2007, at midnight (EST). To submit a proposal, please visit:

“Stewardship was a founding principal of the landscape architecture profession and our members are always seeking information on how to plan, design, and build in balance with nature,” said Patrick W. Caughey, FASLA, president of ASLA. “We want to cast a wide net and encourage everyone involved in helping create sustainable communities to submit proposals on topics that would be of interest to landscape architects.”
