LANDSCAPES 2015 Line-Up Announced
Registration Now Open

NALP, the voice of 100,000 landscape and lawn care industry professionals, has opened registration and announced the speaker schedule for LANDSCAPES 2015.

The National Association of Landscape Professionals has released the education schedule and opened online registration for its annual education convention LANDSCAPES 2015 (formerly GIC), held in Louisville, Ky., in conjunction with GIE+EXPO and Hardscapes North America.

This year's convention will feature more than 40 sessions presented in five different learning formats including town hall meetings, deep-dive workshops, lightning-round sessions, facilitated roundtable discussions, and new this year for NALP members, one-on-one 75-minute business consultations with leading business owners in the industry who are part of the Trailblazer program.

"Our mentoring program-the Trailblazer program-is one of the most unique and in demand programs that we have, and we are happy to make it accessible to so many more people at LANDSCAPES," said Sabeena Hickman, CAE, CEO of the National Association of Landscape Professionals. "The ability to get advice about your most pressing business concerns from another successful landscape industry company owner, who doesn't compete in your market, is a really incredible opportunity."

LANDSCAPES 2015 will feature industry speakers as well as leadership and business experts from outside the industry, including:

David Waits, known globally as a thought leader in leadership development and strategy implementation, whose clients include Wal-Mart, Lexus, Major League Baseball and more.

Kirk Armstrong, an award-winning trainer, speaker and consultant with more than 20 years' experience in the areas of sales, management, strategic planning, interpersonal communications and team building. Known for his experience in developing and training sales tactics and strategies, clients learn how to win more sales, in less time, while creating a common sales language and culture for their organization.

LANDSCAPES 2015 is approved for Landscape Industry Certified recertification at 1 CEU per hour of instruction attended. PGMS and HNA educational programs also qualify toward recertification. Educational sessions are also approved for LA CES.
