Advocacy Update

New York State Council of Landscape Architects

The New York State Council of Landscape Architects (NYSCLA) is the group in New York State established to respond to issues of licensure and matters related to state regulations affecting the profession of Landscape Architecture. NYSCLA is staffed by an Executive Director who reviews pending bills in the State Legislature and acts as the liaison with the professional associations of Architects, Engineers and land surveyors in New York State.

Members from both the Upstate and Downstate Chapters come together in Albany for Lobby Day each year to discuss important issues relating to the profession with elected officials. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the profession and state government.
