As you no doubt recall, our professional license was among many being considered for deregulation.  The MiASLA immediately engaged on this issue and continues to advocate for the continuation of our license on behalf of all licensed landscape architects across our state.  If you are like me, you are anxious for continuous updates, and I wanted to share with you a current update of the Chapter activities on the deregulation topic.

Congratulations to all Michigan Landscape Architects on the passage of the Landscape Architecture Practice Act!

January 12, 2009, Governor Granholm signed HB 5025 and HB 5026 into law under Public Acts 490 and 491, thus regulating the practice of landscape architecture in the State of Michigan rather than merely protecting the right to use the title ‘landscape architect.’  Full licensure levels the playing field for Michigan Landscape Architects by eliminating a competitive disadvantage on a state, regional and national basis for related work and improves our economic businesses standing.

Practice Act -- How You Can Support the Effort

To:    All interested in the advancement of the Landscape Architecture Profession

From:  Government Affairs Committee of the Michigan Chapter of the ASLA

RE:    MASLA - Fund raising for Landscape Architects of Michigan Political Action Committee 

We need your support for our long-term goal as we move from our current title act to a practice act for the landscape architecture profession in Michigan. 

There are myriad steps that we must make now that our legislation has passed into law.  Please help us toward our goal of implementation and true equality with our sister professions by contributing to our Political Action Committee fund.

Please send your contribution to:

Landscape Architects of Michigan PAC
1000 W. St. Joseph Hwy., Suite 200
Lansing, MI  48915

Personal Checks Only.  No corporate checks.

Download the PAC contribution card


The first step is to educate the public: legislators, clients or anyone that may not be clear on the profession.  Do you need help?
