Open Letter from the Conference Chair

On behalf of the Alabama and Mississippi ASLA Chapters I am excited to invite you to our seventh annual Twin States Conference. This year the conference will be held in beautiful Oxford, Mississippi on March 13 - 15.
Each year the Twin States Conference continues to grow, and this year will be no exception. The Conference Steering Committee has assembled a diverse slate of speakers who will present pertinent and timely ideas relative to our profession. Our speakers are also eager to spend time with you during meals and breaks.
We could not continue to grow the Twin States Conference without the ongoing generous support of our sponsors, many of whom have supported the event since it’s beginning. We also welcome some new sponsors and exhibitors this year. It is their commitment to the landscape industry and our region that makes our Conference possible each year, and allows us to continue inviting nationally recognized speakers, all while keeping registration rates low. But don’t just come to get your continuing education credits. For many of us, this is the only time each year we see each other—that’s really what makes the Conference so much fun! Join us for the fellowship, and take some time to relax and renew yourself. Bring your family and enjoy an extra day or two in Oxford at the Inn at Ole Miss, our 2014 host hotel.
Please explore our Twin States Conference website for more information about the educational sessions and activities. Register soon to get the best prices. I’m looking forward to seeing you there!
