Timothy Coppola, ASLA

Think about this: Landscape Architecture, as a profession, would cease to exist without ASLA. You can’t afford not to join ASLA if you want work as a landscape architect. We need you, you need ASLA. With the economic slow down many professions are reaching out into other fields, into landscape architecture, to expand their opportunities-ASLA protects our boundaries. ASLA is our advocate to the public, related professions, media, and government institutions. ASLA explains on a National level what we do, why it is important, and why our profession and training is crucial to the task of improving the livability of our built environment. ASLA makes sure we get credit where credit is due.
