ASLA has announced the call for presentations for the 2012 Annual Meeting and EXPO, to be held September 28–October 1 in Phoenix at the Phoenix Convention Center. The deadline for education session proposals is January 20, and detailed information is available online.
More than 6,000 attendees are expected, and the meeting will feature a diverse spectrum of industry experts speaking on a wide range of subjects, from sustainable design to active living to best practices and new technologies. More than 130 education sessions and field sessions will be presented during the meeting, providing attendees with the opportunity to earn up to 21 professional development hours under the Landscape Architecture Continuing Education System. Many of the sessions will also qualify for continuing education credit with the Green Building Certification Institute (toward LEED AP credential maintenance), the American Institute of Architects, the American Institute of Certified Planners, and other allied professional organizations and state registration boards.
The 2011 Annual Meeting and EXPO in San Diego featured more than 460 exhibits as well as 135 education sessions for the 5,571 registered attendees—the second-largest attendance in ASLA history. For an overview of the 2011 sessions, see http://www.asla.org/2011meeting/EdOverview.html.
