National Association of Landscape Professionals Expands Government Relations Team
FAIRFAX, Va., (March 17, 2021) — The National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) is pleased to announce that it is expanding its government relations team with the addition of Karla Segundo in the newly created position of manager of government relations.
Segundo has experience working in congressional offices, political campaigns, and NALP’s lobbying firm, DCLRS, where she worked on H-2B, pesticides, fertilizers, and other environmental issues important to landscape and lawn care companies.
“We feel that this is the right time to expand our investment in government relations at the Local, State, and Federal levels,” said Andrew Bray, Vice President of Government Relations at NALP. “With the expansion of the team, we can dedicate more resources to important fights in jurisdictions across the nation.”
Segundo will also help the grassroots advocacy efforts by growing the Advocacy Contact Team (ACT) and the NALP-PAC.
The National Association of Landscape Professionals represents an industry of approximately 1 million landscape, lawn care, irrigation, and tree care professionals. Through national advocacy campaigns, the association is growing the industry and its workforce. NALP offers its members professional development through education, networking, and training, certification and accreditation programs.
