The American Society of Landscape Architects is currently accepting presentation submissions for the ASLA 2016 Annual Meeting and EXPO, which will be held October 21-24, 2016 in New Orleans. Individuals who are interested in presenting are invited to submit an online proposal by January 28, 2016 (11:59 pm PDST).
In planning our annual meeting, ASLA focuses on the number one reason that attracts participants—the education program. Meeting attendees can earn up to 21 PDH from a well-balanced education program that focuses on the topics that ASLA members value and require in their day-to-day practices.
Education session speakers selected from this process will receive a full complimentary registration to the ASLA 2016 Annual Meeting and may also be eligible for reimbursement for one night's hotel stay at an official ASLA hotel (estimated $750 value).
Landscape architecture professionals wishing to present at the New Orleans meeting need to be active members of ASLA. Allied professionals are encouraged to both submit presentations and speak but are not required to be members of the Society.
Instructions for Submitting a Presentation

Additionally, the following items are needed for each presentation: speaker names with a biography, a session title, marketing statement, learning objectives, outline, and sources.
