    The Ohio Chapter of ASLA will be hosting its second annual In-State Advocacy Day at the Ohio Statehouse on Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017. See our tentative schedule below!

    We will be modeling our day based on the national ASLA Advocacy Day held in Washington D.C. each year. Please take a moment to let us know if you are interested in participating. Our Call for Volunteers and Issues is now open.

    We have had many issues in Ohio to discuss with our state legislators, from water quality issues in the Toledo area, to recent developments with the Ohio Landscape Architects Board and the Sunset Review Committee. 

    Please contact us if you are interested at vplegislative@ohioasla.org
