Now Accepting 2018 WASLA Conference Proposals

The Washington Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (WASLA) has opened the Call for Proposals for our 2018 Annual Conference. We invite landscape architects, academics, allied professionals, and vendors of the profession to submit proposals that fit this year's conference theme. Please send your proposal as a single PDF and as a Word document to [email protected] by midnight, November 8, 2017. Find the Call for Proposals here .

This year’s theme – Resonate – celebrates the resounding impact of our work as landscape professionals. Leaving a lasting legacy in our role as environmental stewards demonstrates our ecological resonance. Giving voice to a profession and the spaces it occupies demonstrates our political resonance. Responding to and celebrating diversity and accessibility demonstrates our cultural resonance. The reverb of our profession cannot be ignored, nor can our persistent pursuit of representation, accessibility, and longevity of our prized open spaces. Inspired by the critical moments of our times in a rapidly changing context, the WASLA 2018 Annual Conference welcomes discussions about the role of landscape professionals in shaping endearing spaces, and how together our voice, our impact, and our legacy resonate

The 2018 WASLA Annual Conference will take place on Friday, March 16, 2018 at the Motif Hotel in Seattle. More details to follow!

If you’re looking for an exciting and meaningful way to get involved in WASLA, looking for a professional skill-building opportunity, or interested in making an impact on the profession – join the Conference Planning Committee! We’re looking for a few dedicated and focused volunteers. Contact [email protected] for more information.
