Michigan ASLA Lobby Day
October 19, 2021
Register now and join your fellow Michigan ASLA members for a day of grassroots lobbying on issues related to the landscape architecture profession. Once again, your Chapter is taking the effort directly to our elected leaders! Michigan ASLA members will visit legislative offices to introduce landscape architecture to our elected leaders, and explain why landscape architects must remain a licensed profession.
Your participation is essential for the Michigan ASLA and the landscape architecture profession to make a difference and show the importance of the landscape architecture within Michigan.
Please plan on spending October 19, 2021 in Lansing. Register today and be sure to schedule appointments with your legislators. If you need help determining who your elected leaders are, MiASLA lobbyists can point you in the right direction.
