    President's Message

    Hello Ohio Chapter ASLA,
    Due to the ongoing quarantine of COVID-19, we must postpone the Annual Meeting and Expo and Statehouse Day to TBD date in Fall 2020. The 2020 Ohio Chapter ASLA Board of Directors are working diligently to reschedule these event with venue, speakers, and exhibitors. While we are hard at work planning the day’s events, we wanted to ensure you that your registration will be retroactively applied to the new date and will not be subjected to additional charges should the event registration increase due to unforeseen circumstances. We will provide details on the Annual Meeting and Expo page as they are solidified. Please forward information along to attendees that you may have signed up by proxy.
    In the event that the Fall date does not work with your schedule or other unforeseen circumstances occur, we will be offering full refunds for the event. If you would like a refund, please email our treasurer, Kari Hiatt ([email protected]) and copy Chris Laster ([email protected]).
    We are also encouraged to have such great sponsors of the Ohio Chapter ASLA who are stepping up to provide members with virtual LACES approved CEU opporunities. Please take a look below and on the Allied Events Section of ohioasla.org HERE for updates.
    ASLA National is also offering 2 Free to ASLA Member Webinars for a total of 3 LACES/HSW CEUs.

    Rebroadcast: Breaking Free from Tropical Hardwoods: New Alternatives for Sustainability - 1.5 PDH (LA CES/HSW)

    This webinar is free for all ASLA members.

    Wednesday, April 15, 2020

    2:00–3:30 pm ET
    Join us on April 15 as we discuss how the dependency on tropical hardwoods is unsustainable given current rates of use, ecosystem degradation, and slow renewal rates. Fortunately, there are new alternatives that are durable, beautiful, and renewable. In this rebroadcast, you will learn how to use and work with thermally modified, acetylated, and polymerized woods, fused bamboo lumber, and black locust.

     

    Rebroadcast: Drawing Matters: Exploring the Value of Drawing in Landscape Architecture - 1.5 PDH (LA CES/non-HSW)

    This webinar is free for all ASLA members.

    Wednesday, April 29, 2020

    2:00–3:30 pm ET
    Join us on April 29 as we discuss why drawing still matters. Rather than the familiar debate over digital versus hand graphics, this session explores the value of drawing as a process connected to seeing, thinking, and engaging throughout design.

    Please feel free to email us at info.ohioasla.org if you have any questions or concerns regarding this postponement. Thank you for your flexibility, patience, and understanding while we navigate these uncertain times.
    Stay safe and healthy,
