We on the Advocacy Committee hope to explore what advocacy means for landscape architects in this BLOG. In the broadest definition, it means to support what’s important. This post explores what we can do on a local level to support worthy local projects and the implications of not doing so.
While we all understand that advocating for the profession of landscape architecture is important, at the most basic level many of us ask “what’s in it for me?” The Advocacy Committee of our ASLA Upstate New York Chapter will begin posting updates on important advocacy initiatives and successes as they relate to our nation and our home state. We hope that you are impassioned by our power to influence legislation when we act collectively and are invigorated by our successes.
