NALP Launches Voices for Healthy Green Spaces Advocacy Initiative
Fairfax, VA., (January 13, 2022) —The National Association of Landscape Professionals has launched a new digital advocacy program called Voices for Healthy Green Spaces.
NALP's government affairs team works year-round to protect the industry and ensure that policymakers understand the needs of landscape and lawn care businesses, but they can't do it alone.
The greenspacevoices.org website and social media channels foster an online community of industry professionals and consumer advocates dedicated to highlighting the beneficial work of the lawn and landscape profession in strengthening local communities, supporting a strong economy, and improving local environments.
"The industry faces critical challenges right now, so we strongly encourage every lawn or landscape professional to sign up and become a voice for the industry," said Britt Wood, NALP CEO. "We are building a community of tens of thousands of industry professionals and consumers who are willing to reach out to legislators and regulators in support of managed lawns and landscapes."
The platform ensures that the public and decision-makers have access to accurate information about key industry issues.
Participation in Voices for Healthy Green Spaces is free. Participants will receive regular updates and information about relevant industry issues, including regulations, legislation, or current events that affect the work of industry members and their positive impacts in their local communities. In addition, members will be notified when it's time to take action together.
