These days around the office, we’ve started playing a game we call, “Where’s Greg?” As President of ASLA his schedule is quickly being filled with events and presentations across the country.

 

From supporting ASLA efforts at various state chapter meetings, to giving presentations at the 2017 ASLA conference, to staying involved with design and construction projects underway in New Mexico, Greg is on the move and in the know. If you see him, take a picture and tag it #whereisgregmiller. Here's a preview of where you'll find him in 2018:
