"Ben.........I agree with what you have stated here about ASLA!
My 1st LA job was working for Lane L. Marshall in Sarasota, Florida (back in 1977)....at the time, Lane Marshall was the President of ASLA. I wasn't a member then...never join…"
"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.
"An interesting dialogue that has started based on a simple question about dues and if they are deductible.

"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…"
I'm thinking about attending grad school for LA and I am looking for advice on being educated abroad? I really want to live in Europe again (Scandinavia ideally), but getting my master's there would mean not being a certified landscape architect in…Continue
