Annual Conference, AGM & Showcase of Products

    Following a review of the 2022 BCSLA Post Conference Survey results BCSLA volunteers have reviewed all of the comments and did their utmost to incorporate many of the observations into the planning of this great conference.  

    Passion, Challenge, Change 
    Our annual conference was meant to inspire and affirm the current practice of landscape architecture, especially that of the BCSLA Membership. Dr. Patrick Moooney, LMBCSLA, FCSLA, FCELA, and the Conference Organizing team curated a terrific program featuring on-the-ground stories and contributions, from members and allies, that express their passion for the profession, the challenges they’ve overcome in order to do great work and their response to changes they have seen, or foresee, in society and the profession.  More than 300 delegates, allied professionals, speakers, volunteers and exhibitors helped us to celebrate the profession of landscape architecture over three days of quality programming. Download the 2023 Conference Program here - Updated: April 21, 2023
