In recent years, ASLA achieved some critical legislative successes including working to successfully stave off state attacks on licensure, to pass legislation to support the National Park Service, the Land and Water Conservation Fund, active transportation programs, and more.  Even as advocacy continues for these and other issues, the results of this survey will begin to determine which federal advocacy issues will be a priority for the Society in the upcoming 116th Congress in 2019-2020 and will help shape your local chapter’s upcoming advocacy efforts.

Please take a moment to complete the ASLA Federal and State Legislative Priorities Survey to tell us about issues that are important to you and continue to share it with your Chapter members. Please complete your survey by May 15.

Take this opportunity to shape ASLA’s future political landscape.

The Mississippi State University Student ASLA Chapter will be participating in the 2017 PARK(ing) Day this Friday, September 15, 2017 in downtown Starkville from 12pm to 6pm.  
This year, the students will have their parklet on display at the Bulldog Bash’s Maroon Market on Main Street.  The students are hoping that the change from a location on campus to downtown Starkville will provide additional exposure to both the Student ASLA chapter as well as PARK(ing) Day.
If you are available to travel to Starkville and visit the students this Friday, I would encourage you to do so to show our chapter’s support of the the student chapter’s endeavors.

The venue for the 2018 Twin States Conference  is under construction.  We hope you plan to attend.
