2019 WASLA Conference

Vantage Point

Through recent annual WASLA Conferences we have explored Landscape Architecture’s role in solving the major issues facing the 21st Century, in historical placemaking with a mind toward nature, and in shaping lasting legacies throughout communities we serve. In 2019 we are called together around an expression of who we are as professionals in the world, what Landscape Architecture values and stands for, how we outreach, how we inspire others to engage, and how we message our work and its resounding importance.

Vantage Point elevates us to a higher perspective for the rare opportunity to align our collective outlook of the profession with dominant issues of the day, and re-examine prevailing attitudes about the potential for our work against our accumulated knowledge, experience, priorities and beliefs. Your voice and perspectives are needed in this critical conversation.  Please join us on March 22 in Tacoma.

Conference Program

We are excited to be in Tacoma this year! The conference features a range of inspirational, practical and topical educational sessions in four tracks: Resiliency, Identity, Proximity, Support.

Earn 5.5 LA CES professional development hours at the conference, and up to 16 PDH by also attending our field trip, site tour, and sketch crawl! You won't want to miss the two lively receptions at this, the state’s largest gathering of Landscape Architecture professionals.

If you haven’t been to Tacoma in a while or if the city is among your favorite haunts, the 2019 WASLA Conference is the perfect reason to plan a visit. Check out the evolving walkable downtown core, stunning waterfront, museums and cultural attractions, and enjoy an authentic unfiltered Northwest experience.
