We need each other

Join Us

The Potomac Chapter helps its members network to stay connected to National ASLA and their profession, to make professional contacts, to find work, to stay tuned to legislative happenings, and to stay abreast of local current events.

Membership Information and Application

Our Potomac Chapter serves the Greater Washington, DC region (DC, Northern VA, and suburban MD).

We provide landscape architects a united presence and identity in the Greater DC area and a representative voice in the issues and events that will determine the future of the profession.

Our Chapter is more active than ever and provides a variety of opportunities for participation. Whether you are interested in community service, education, networking, professional development, or just pure socializing, there’s something for everyone. To get detailed information about chapter activities, watch this website or visit our Facebook page.

Weekly emails keep members up to date on our events, as well as others.  Potomac Chapter members also benefit from discounts to some of our programs and those of our partners.

Examples include our Open Studios/Tours + Happy Hours, which are currently provided at no charge. The cost/person of just three or four of these networking events equals the cost of Chapter dues.  Our Chapter plans three Open Studios annually, as well as other tours and happy hours.

The Chapter provides much more than networking events and happy hours.
Our Annual Celebration and Gala Dinner are two of our premier programs.

More than 130 people attended our 2019 Gala.  At the Gala, the award-winning projects are presented, as well as student scholarships and our Lifetime Achievement Award.  Our keynote speaker addresses a subject of interest to landscape architects and their guests.

In 2024, 14 projects were honored with awards and were highlighted on our website.
