Our programs evolve from member suggestions, and we have revamped the 2018 program line-up to better meet member needs. The Program Committee is organizing 4 ‘mini-Symposiums’. Each of these programs will be 4-6 hours in length, which will allow us to delve deeper into the subject matter. And, networking time, which is always integral to every program, is being expanded. We will continue to address issues related to professional growth, design exposure, national certification and business/legislative advocacy. Be sure to share your thoughts and ideas with the Program Committee!

    The Root of Communication Conflicts: Learn about perceptions, core values, and emotional triggers. This section will include some information regarding the multigenerational workforce. Participants will engage in both individual and small group work.

    Communication Patterns: Analyze habitual verbal and nonverbal communication patterns, linguistics, responses, and micro-expressions through demonstration and adult learning methodologies.

    Optimizing Conversations: Strategize ways to optimize potential conversations with contractors, vendors, and clients by modifying existing communication habits, reviewing communications rating high on the hostility scale, identifying high conflict words, and utilizing breathing techniques.

    Lisa Voso's magnetic personality and unique method of Prepare • Rehearse • Deliver™ empowers each training participant to take charge of their voice, influence, and professional career. Based on over twenty-five years of experience, Lisa's method has helped thousands of people from around the world to understand the power and pitfalls of communication. She uses her extensive knowledge as an attorney, communications professor, and speech coach to get to the heart of the matter in effective communication.

    Lisa's ambition to master the art and skill of speaking with influence dates back to high school when she competed on a national speech and debate team. Lisa continued with national competitions while in college and law school. Her skills were instrumental in obtaining internships with the State Attorney's Office, Circuit Court Judges, and the Maryland House of Delegates. Lisa's international externships took her to both Scotland and South Africa. In addition to her Juris Doctorate, Lisa holds a Master of Arts degree in Communication and Leadership. Her upcoming book is based on her original work and methods.

    APLD, WSNLA, and ASLA CEUs pending.

    From the Board

    A big thank you to all who contributed to our holiday gift of support for a Landscape Design Student. This is the second year we have awarded a Scholarship Fund for a local college student and are rotating the receiving schools – this year to Edmonds Community College's Horticulture program to the Landscape Design Specialization. We have received $975 in donations from our members and will round that up to a $1,000 award to a selected student. Thanks to all for your generous support!

    The national APLD conference is coming to Seattle in 2019! Susie Thompson, APLD, has graciously agreed to be local site committee chair and will very soon be putting together the local site committee. If you are interested, please email Susie. Thank you!

    NWFGS is organizing and hosting the GardenPRO Conference, a one-day symposium focused on the landscape professional. Taking place in conjunction with the NWFGS in Seattle, on February 9, 2018, the conference features an exhaustive list of speakers, including Lisa Port, APLD, Jay Nyce, and David Perry.
