July 2015 Letter from the President

We are coming into summer, a busy time of year for all of us working in the Green Industry. I want to remind you during this busy time to renew your membership with the Nevada Landscape Association. If you aren’t yet a member, consider joining us! A question we frequently get is: why should I become a member? What’s in it for me?

The benefits to NLA membership are many. The Nevada Landscape Association provides a voice for the industry on city, county and state legislative and regulatory issues. Membership gets you discounted admission to the annual conference and trade show where you can earn profession continuing education units (CEUs). You also have the opportunity to attend a variety of educational sessions at many of the monthly membership meetings. We administer the State Landscape Industry Certified program, which provides an opportunity to test and accredit workers who pass written and field tests of their landscape skills. More benefits and a link to the membership application can be found at nevadanla.com/about-nevada/join-nla/.

We welcome you to join us the first Tuesday of each month at 12 p.m. at the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension office at 4955 Energy for our membership meeting and networking. We hope to see you soon!
