The NJASLA is the NJ Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects, a national organization of Landscape Architects, formed in 1899. There are currently over 16,500 members of the ASLA.
The NJASLA works hard to provide local services to NJ member Landscape Architects. Members are kept up to date on important issues via monthly newsletters and website postings. Every year, the members gather at the annual meeting, a three day event full of seminars, continuing education and socializing. Last year’s event was attended by over 600 people.
Through the efforts of NJASLA, the New Jersey State Legislature adopted new legislation in 2008 to increase the effectiveness of Landscape Architects in providing “quality of life” places and spaces throughout New Jersey and encourage an equal status for Landscape Architects with Architects, Engineers, Planners and Surveyors within the land development process.
