2015 MiASLA Annual Meeting – Exhibitor Registration

Dear Friends of Michigan Landscape Architects and supporters of Michigan ASLA:

Plans for our 2015 Annual Meeting are being finalized. On Thursday, October 1, 2015 our meeting will take place at the Ann Arbor Marriott Hotel and Conference Center located at the Eagle Crest Golf Club. The hotel is located in Ypsilanti at S. Huron Street just off of I-94. Parking is available on site adjacent to the conference center and hotel. We expect to host 125+ landscape architects from all over the state as well as professionals in related fields. Our desire is to make this year’s annual meeting well attended, and we have included dedicated time for interaction between attendees and exhibitors. Michigan ASLA would appreciate your support, presence and participation throughout the entire day. Please note that though this is a one-day meeting event, we will also have a social event at Matthei Botanical Gardens (at the University of Michigan) the evening of Wednesday, September 30.

We anticipate that all sponsorship opportunities will go fast, so don’t delay in registering for the event and being and exhibitor/sponsor!

MiASLA Legislative Talking Points

Posted 27 February 2013

The Arguments Against De-Regulation of Landscape Architects


Landscape architecture is a profession that blends creativity and science. Every day, landscape architects work to improve our communities and the environment, using their talents in planning, design and land‐use management. Projects that landscape architects design and contribute to include parks, urban design, residential developments, campuses, shopping centers, gardens, transportation facilities, corporate and institutional facilities and more. The profession became licensed in 2008 with Public Act 490.

The following are reasons to keep the landscape architect license in place here in Michigan:
  • If licensure is revoked, Michigan will be the only state that does not regulate landscape architecture.
  • Without a license to practice, every Michigan-based landscape architect will immediately be placed at a competitive disadvantage with a lack of reciprocity and inability to bring projects and work out of state back here to Michigan.
  • Landscape architects compete and collaborate with other design professions, such as architects and civil engineers. Without licensure, we simply cannot compete and our businesses cannot function. Licensure levels the playing field for Michigan landscape architects by eliminating this competitive disadvantage on a regional and national basis, even within our own profession.
