President's Report

Baxter Miller, ASLA Chaptetr President

There is an old adage in business; it's not what you know, but who you know. This is very true when it comes to obtaining employment for the first time. If you are depending on an unsolicited email unceremoniously delivered to my inbox to get you a job, forget about it. I get 15 such emails a week, none of which are followed up with a personal contact.

Chapter News

  • Landscape Architects are playing an important role in shaping the state's new mandated water conservation requirements.

    Our industry's voice is important! That's why our four ASLA California Chapters through the CA Council of ASLA (our industry's legislative/policy voice in Sacramento) provided input and recommended state water policy changes to the state's draft Model Water Efficient Landscape Ordinance (MWELO).

    Please take a moment to review the attached CCASLA letter with our industry recommendations to the state Department of Water Resources (DWR) at THIS LINK.

  • Drought panic and rebates incentivize too many quick and dirty solutions for our water crisis.

  • ASLA is transforming its outdated Washington, D.C., headquarters into a new Center for Landscape Architecture. Please help us by making a charitable donation today.

  • More than 2,500 have registered for the ASLA Annual Meeting and EXPO to take advantage of the early-bird deadline rates. About 50 percent of these individuals have booked their hotel rooms at one of our five official ASLA meeting hotels.

    Hotel rooms are starting to sell out! If you haven’t yet, I encourage you to register and book your hotel room before the advanced deadline of October 2nd, when rates increase. Remember you book the block you receive a $75 discount on your registration fee.

  • President Obama acknowledges landscape architects' role in rebuilding infrastructure.

  • The ASLA Southern California Chapter encourages you to learn more about your profession and enjoy the benefits of networking and working with fellow members of your industry by volunteering to assist in the organization of the following association events, programs and activities.  For volunteer opportunities, contact the Chapter at 714-838-3615.
