Description: Founded in 1899, the American Society of Landscape Architects is the national professional association representing landscape architects. Beginning with its 11 original members, ASLA has grown to more than 13,500 members and 48 chapters, representing all 50 states, the U.S. territories, and 42 countries around the world. ASLA promotes the landscape architecture profession and advances the practice through advocacy, education, communication, and fellowship. The majority of ASLA members, nearly 80 percent, work in private practice. More than one-third of ASLA’s members are employed by small landscape architecture firms with fewer than 10 employees. Twenty percent work in larger landscape architecture firms. Thirty percent work in larger mixed-discipline firms, with a concentration on landscape architecture, engineering, architecture, or design/build. Nearly 12 percent of ASLA’s members work in the public sector. Less than five percent of ASLA members are fulltime educators. The remaining members are employed by private developers or work in other specialized fields.
