American Society of Landscape Architects

The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) is a national society that represents the landscape architecture profession in the United States. Founded in 1899, the ASLA represents more than 13,500 members and has 48 chapters across the country with headquarters in Washington, D.C. Each state is represented by a local chapter. To become a member of the state chapter, one must first become a member of the national organization.
Key programs and services of the ASLA include an annual meeting, Landscape Architecture magazine, LAND Online, online electronic services, professional workshops and seminars, leadership training, employment referral, demonstration projects, and awards programs. In addition, the U.S. Department of Education has authorized the ASLA to accredit programs of landscape architecture at U.S. colleges and universities. The University of Georgia offers an accredited program in landscape architecture in the School of Environmental Design.
