About SKILL | ED

SKILL | ED is a new ASLA virtual practice management program designed to empower landscape architecture professionals as their job responsibilities grow. This three-day virtual learning experience is a career development investment for practitioners looking to build their leadership capacity, add value to their firm, and develop transferable business development skills.

What is the focus of SKILL | ED?

The SKILL | ED program is focused on three learning studios: business development, proposals, and contracts - all key elements of practice management that landscape architects practice every day. We know landscape architects have busy and demanding schedules. So each day is structured to get the most out of your time with dynamic sessions starting in the afternoon.

Why should firm leaders sponsor emerging and mid-career team members to attend?

The business landscape is changing. Finding new clients, translating passion into research, or creating new practice models isn't something just for senior firm leadership anymore. Every team member can do their part in business development and providing space for young professionals to grow in your firm or agency is encouragement for employees to stick around.
