President's Remarks

Duane Dietz

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.  As you may have seen in an email we sent out last week, the National ASLA Conference is not coming to Seattle in next year due to delays in the Convention Center construction.  ASLA quickly located a new host in the Northern California Chapter, and the conference will be held in San Francisco November 4-7, 2022.  SO, what does this mean for us?  The Board is working hard to come with plans and budgets that respond to this monumental change.  We’re planning on holding our state conference next fall somewhere in the Puget Sound area, likely in early October.  I’m putting out a call for volunteers to help with conference planning.  Contact any of the board members or email [email protected] if you are interested.

Our annual membership meeting is scheduled for December 16th. I invite you all to listen in and take part.  Our Chapter relies on all our members’ participation, and it makes us a better organization.
