ASLA Chapters in New York
NYSCLA is comprised of ASLA members from both the Upstate and NY Chapters in New York State. Each of the Chapters has their own website, newsletter, and meetings which help to serve the members in those areas.
The NY Chapter includes the following counties: the five boroughs of New York City, Nassau and Suffolk counties on Long Island, Westchester, Putnam, Dutchess, Orange and Rockland.
The Upstate Chapter includes the remaining counties.
Founded on December 3, 1954, New York Upstate was the 13th chapter to be organized as part of the American Society of Landscape Architects. ASLA is the national professional association representing more than 16,000 members.
The Executive Committee meets regularly to plan events, coordinate continuing education programs and plan advocacy efforts.
ASLA-NY was founded in 1914 (the second chapter of the national organization) to advocate for and serve members studying and practicing landscape architecture in the New York Metropolitan-Long Island region. The Chapter is comprised of over 500 members who engage in public, private and academic practices that participate in the careful stewardship, wise planning and artful design of our cultural and natural environments.
