Are you a young professional working in the landscape industry?

Do you want to gain insight from successful business owners? 

Do you want to build your professional network with other young professionals and industry leaders?


ILCA’s first ever young professionals day-in/night-out event was held on February 15, 2018. 

The 2018 event started at Hursthouse Landscape Architects and Contractors at 2pm. While at Hursthouse, we toured the design studio and shop that is home to award winning landscape architects & contractors. We also had an open discussion around the following topics:

Company Culture: Why it’s important and how do you build one.

Team: We are better together. How your unique abilities matter.

Professional Development: What are the critical factors in building a 40+ year career.



Bob Hursthouse, Hursthouse Landscape Architects and Contractors; Barry Conlin, C.B. Conlin Landscapes; and Chris Kane, Kane Brothers Water Features were present to answer any questions and also to give attendees a firsthand look at what it takes to succeed in the industry.




We continued the event at Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery for complimentary cocktails, fun, and networking from 4-6pm.


All drinks and refreshments were courtesy of our sponsor:
