Represent CLARB on LA CES committees

CLARB's appointed volunteers help maintain standards for evaluating professional development and continuing education programs by representing CLARB on three Landscape Architecture Continuing Education System (LA CES) committees: Administrative, Application Review and Monitoring. Participating organizations appoint one representative to each committee for a term of three years, with one third of the members of each committee appointed each year.

The LA CES program is administered through a collaboration of landscape architecture organizations, including:

  • American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA)
  • Canadian Society of Landscape Architects (CSLA)
  • Council of Educators in Landscape Architecture (CELA)
  • Council of Landscape Architectural Registration Boards (CLARB)
  • Landscape Architectural Accreditation Board (LAAB)
  • Landscape Architecture Foundation (LAF)

These organizations have agreed on the LA CES Approved Provider Guidelines and are responsible for program management and oversight. ASLA provides staffing and overhead for program administration, including: management and maintenance of the online, searchable LA CES course database; committee and customer service support; and accounting, communications/marketing and other professional/technical resources. ASLA reports to the Administrative Committee on program operations and finances at least annually.

Eligibility: Volunteers must be CLARB Member Board Executives, Staff or Members
