Wendy Miller

Wendy Miller, FASLA, has spent over 30 years as a registered landscape architect focusing on urban design and transportation. Miller’s career started in the public sector working in local government developing environmental ordinances and promoting aesthetic improvements through design, project development, and public awareness. Her transition to transportation planning and policy with the Winston-Salem Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization opened a new avenue of work and commitment to creating humane transportation infrastructure. Miller believes having landscape architects involved in shaping transportation corridors – our most ubiquitous public space – is critical.

The time of year is here again for the annual Mississippi Chapter CSI Product Show.  It is still the largest and longest running COMMERCIAL product show in Mississippi!  As you can see on the attached, the seminars promise to be outstanding, and I think both may interest landscape architects.  One deals with ceramic tile and the other deals with custom woodwork.  Also, I’m excited to say that our own Martha Hill, representing Earthscape, will be part of the show!  Sooooo, anyone wanting to check out current construction products and get a free meal, I hope that’s an offer they can’t refuse.  There are costs associated with the seminars, but each has CEU credits.  Just click on the links in the invitation and seminar forms to register for the seminars and the product show.
