APLDWA offers monthly programs designed to meet the goals of our chapter and the needs of our members. Programs address issues related to professional growth, design exposure, national certification and business/legislative advocacy. Unique venues and fresh approaches are always sought, and networking is integral to every program. Programs evolve from member suggestions, so be sure to share your thoughts with the program committee!
It’s the Right Time to get Started
APLD CERTIFICATION WORKSHOP
Wednesday September 241 pm – 5 pm
Mountaineers Seattle Program Center
Goodman A Room
7700 Sand Point Way, Seattle 98115
Free (Members only event)
Certified APLD member Barbara Lycett, APLD, will present the requirements and criteria for certification and answer questions about how to identify and prepare appropriate projects for submission. This small group workshop format will allow you to receive feedback about projects you are considering and enable you to take the next steps toward certification. In addition, there will be an opportunity to team up with others who are pursuing certification. Bring drawings and photos of potential certification projects. The workshop is designed also to help new designers prepare for eventual certification.
Lisa Port, APLD, will address the importance of certification as it relates to future practice of Landscape Designers in our state.
The workshop will conclude with a tour of a wonderful View Ridge landscape that Susie Thompson, APLD, used in her certification process. We will enjoy light refreshments in this garden.
Join us for an afternoon of taking the first step toward APLD Certification.
