"I'm not a member of ASLA or CLARB.  While it certainly seems like a legit business expense, I'd ask your accountant to be sure.  If you're an employee of a firm, they may also know the answer to that. Dave"

Robert Anderson replied to Ben Holmes's discussion 'ASLA dues'
"An interesting dialogue that has started based on a simple question about dues and if they are deductible. I would have to say that I'm on the other end of the spectrum. I have worked for employers who supported ASLA and paid the dues and…"

Ben Holmes replied to Audrey's discussion 'Need help deciding which college for undergrad?'
"My two cents is to go somewhere that is going to prepare you to be the type of Landscape Architect you want to be.  I was naive to this when I went to school.  I went to Oregon and they were heavier in the research side of the profession.…"

"Thanks for the responses.  I can relate to the sentiment here.  I have been in the same mindset for some years now.  What does ASLA do for me?  Is it there for the 1%?  I look at it as I pay $370/year for a magazine that is…"

"Good luck justifying the cost. They have us cornered. As far as I can tell, the ASLA and CLARB do very little to justify the enormous fees they charge. To take the LARE today you are looking at $2,000 in fees alone (before state fees, study…"

Ben Holmes commented on Brandon Reed's group 'L.A.R.E. - ANYTHING GOES'
"I am new to this site, but have to take advantage of being able to voice my opinion about the LARE. Is it just me or has this turned into more of civil engineering exam than a landscape architecture exam? I work at a primarily civil design firm and…"
