What does it mean to you to be an NALP member? Every time we do a member story, you tell us. And, quite frankly, your answers make us smile. We take great pride supporting our members throughout the year–whether it’s by offering peer networking or mentoring opportunities, educational events and webinars, insightful blog and magazine articles or certification opportunities. So when you tell us what it means to you to be a part of this industry association, it makes what we do that much sweeter.
The holidays are a time of being thankful and we’re thankful for our members. No gifts, please! You’ve already provided them by telling us how thankful you are for us as well. Here are some of the recent answers to the question: What does it mean to you to be an NALP member?
Why are YOU an NALP member?
Brigitte Orrick, The Davey Tree Expert Co.
“With NALP, we have a place to collaborate and help advance the industry in a meaningful way. I also just started to serve with the Women in Landscape Network. I’m excited to get to share my passion with other women and help them pursue leadership within their companies.”
Lisa Fiore, LandscapeHub
“It means being close to the pulse of what’s going on in the industry. As a business owner and leader, it’s important to know what is affecting other industry stakeholders. NALP is my bridge to that information.”
Shayne Newman, YardApes
“I think everything NALP stands for comes back to professionalism. Members who join take pride in being professionals and want to be better at what they do. I believe that NALP gives those tools they need to succeed—training, resources, networking and the opportunity to be mentored by peers.”
Terra Phelps, Utopian Landscapes
“It’s a lot like having a VIP membership to be part of NALP. It’s the inside of the industry and it’s filled with people who are inspiring and passionate. I meet so many great people at LANDSCAPES who are always willing to share advice or offer their wisdom about the industry.”
Ben Carruthers, Carruthers Landscape Management
“I’m a new NALP member and I’m really excited about it. When it was ALCA, I joined to be able to connect with other business owners. And that’s why I have rejoined today. You need to be able to have people who you can connect and share with—and it can’t be your employees. I’m excited to be able to connect with peers.”
