Summer Semester 2016, Spring Semester 2017 and Fall Semester 2017 - Association of Professional Landscape Designers (APLD) and the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) are two international associations in my specific field of speciality.
My Activity in the APLD Started with my work at the state level in the fall of 2013 when I was a tour guide and supported the local chapter with the international conference (see conference details here). This lead to a position at the state level as Educational / Certification Chair (giving lectures like this) and eventually at the national level in the position of Students Chair. Soon this lead to the request for an article as seen above as well as a short article seen here. Over time I submitted to be considered as a presenter at an International Convention. My abstract was accepted and the results are seen below.
At the same time I was engaging with the APLD I was involved in the ASLA, attending many state and international events as seen here with a sample CEU confirmation.
