We are proud to announce that our very own Vanessa Warren, was recently elected to the national executive committee of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) as Vice President of Membership.

She will serve for two years and will be charged with all membership tasks of the society, including: managing state and student chapters, emerging professionals, leadership development and membership growth/satisfaction.

She was voted in by ASLA’s Board of Trustees in Washington D.C., where she spent Advocacy Day 2016 raising awareness for policies important to the landscape architecture profession, including: storm water management, Complete Streets and the National Parks Centennial Challenge. She even brought her daughter along to meet Congressman Dan Kildee.
