President's Remarks
Tim Slazinik

Fellow WASLA Members and Chapter Supporters,

It’s finally summer! With summer comes change, and for WASLA that means Board of Directors Elections. We hope you will take the time to review the slate and vote for your new leadership. We have also received the exciting news that two of our Washington ASLA members have been elevated to Fellow. Our chapter has been lucky enough to be home to a large number of FASLA members, and we are excited to congratulate Mark Brands and Brice Maryman on their elevation to that esteemed group of professionals.

As always we would love your input and volunteer time to keep us moving forward. Look forward to more Open Studio Socials and Happy Hours, as well as Parking Day and Design Week Events coming soon. We will also be hosting our Full membership meeting in early fall. Thank you all so much for your time and dedication to WASLA and Landscape Architecture, and have a great summer!

Have a great Summer!


Congratulations to WASLA Travel Scholarship Winners!

Congratulations to the 2019 WASLA Travel Scholarship recipients, Matthew Grosser (UW MLA 2020) and Dylan Marcus (UW MLA 2021).

2nd year (Associate): $99
3rd year (Associate): $175
4th year (Full): $225
