ASLA State Advocacy Priorities Survey
State Advocacy Issues
ASLA is committed to supporting its 49 chapters as they work to influence public policy in all 50 states and DC. As ASLA Chapters prepare for 2014, ASLA wants to hear from you on the issues that matter to landscape architects in your state. This survey is intended to provide data that help guide future Chapter advocacy efforts and identify potential volunteers to develop and implement an advocacy plan for your chapter.
Remember, this survey is intended to help ASLA chapters shape public policy at the state level. In early 2014, you will have the opportunity to help shape ASLA’s federal priorities.
