Benefits of Membership
VA ASLA has helped transform the understanding and respect of the profession of landscape architecture in our state. The breadth of work that our professionals have access to, including residential clients, municipalities, developers, the US military, and countless more, exists today in part because VA ASLA has fought tirelessly to promote the value of our profession. Looking forward, VA ASLA is a safeguard for the future of our profession.
Additional membership benefits include:
Students and Recent Graduates
FREE membership is available to students of landscape architecture around the world and student affiliates enrolled in institutions without a landscape architecture program.
A VA ASLA membership provides discounts for all of the ASLA sponsored events held throughout the year as well as events for the local chapter. This is a great way to recover membership fees while continuing one's education, establishing a professional network, and accessing resources for one's professional development.

Employers and Companies
For firm principals, encouraging membership and contributing to employee dues is justified by the knowledge that VA ASLA supports both the profession and its community. The strength of the organization lies in the base of its membership. By promoting employee membership, the member support base grows. It takes supporting members and volunteers to make these vital community resources sustainable.
At a national level, ASLA lobbies for legislation that protects the environment and promotes projects that employ landscape architects. At a state level, VA ASLA works to protect minimum standards that regulate how landscape architects practice and restrict non-licensed enterprises from competing in the field. All of this is possible through a strong member base.
In addition, employees that are VA ASLA members are connected to industry trends and innovations that they can integrate into their practice and firm, bolstering the credibility of the firm and its appeal to prospective clients.
Membership Financial Support
We know times are tough, so the VA ASLA offers scholarships to individuals for membership to help them access the many resources provided by the VA ASLA. Contact the VA ASLA Executive Committee for more information.
Interested in Volunteering?
Members who go a step further by volunteering exhibit their strong sense of individual responsibility and giving back to the community. They understand that united, members can support, challenge, and improve the profession more than as individuals. Contact the VA ASLA Executive Committee for more information about volunteering.
