  • People often ask me why I joined APLD. Events like the Winter Lecture Series and the annual conference make it worthwhile. But advocacy on behalf of the landscape design profession also plays an important role. Our chapter might not have learned of the bill without the help of the national APLD advocacy committee. And we were taken seriously by ASLA and the DC Council in part because we are part of a national organization. In times like these, it’s important to have a seat at the table.
