The San Joaquin Valley Section
The California Sierra Chapter has one officially designated ‘Section’, the San Joaquin Valley (SJV) Section. A Section is a subset of the larger operating chapter which represents a specific geographic territory. The SJV Section represents our chapter’s membership in the San Joaquin Valley and is officially represented on the Executive Committee by the SJV Section Chair. Please contact the current SJV Chair for more information.
If you are interested in establishing additional sections within the Chapter’s geographic boundaries, please contact the current president at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on the process and requirements.
The UC Davis Student Chapter
Our Chapter is the charter sponsor of the University of California Davis Student Chapter of the ASLA. If you would like to contact their chapter, you can email our Student Organization Committee Chair at email@example.com or visit the student chapter’s webpage.
Our mission as a Chapter is the advancement of knowledge, education, and skill in the art and science of landscape architecture as an instrument of service in the public welfare. To this end, our Chapter promotes the profession through advocacy, education, communication, and fellowship. We support the strategic objectives of ASLA National by adapting those objectives into initiatives, outreach events, education sessions and other activities which reinforce our mission at the local level.
