Again this year, the Chapter will display our 2020 award winners and information about our Chapter and the profession of landscape architecture.
We’re also planning another case study panel of awardees, followed by a networking reception. We will apply for 1.0 hours LA CES credit as soon as the panelists are confirmed.
One of our newest events is our Annual Chapter Celebration, honoring new members, leaders, and Fellows, which will be held in November/December. We expect the licensure application in DC will finally be operational and that we’ll be able to recognize new DC licensees, too.
One of the reasons we decided to invest in renting the SIGAL Gallery at the District Architecture Center was to increase the visibility of our Chapter and our profession, which benefits all members. You may have noticed that we have also increased our online presence through our website and social media.
The Chapter has been working for several years (with the help of a lobbyist) to promote licensure for landscape architects in the District and is thrilled to announce that we finally succeeded! The bill was approved by Congress. As soon as the District opens their online licensure application portal, we will begin recognizing new licensees.
Partnerships and LA CES
We continue to seek out ways to partner with allied organizations for your benefit. The Potomac Chapter is again a partnering organization for DesignDC, a conference where you can earn LA CES credit. We are also a partner with a number of other organizations, giving you more opportunities to learn and earn LA CES credit. As part of these agreements, Chapter members frequently receive discounted registration fees.
