“I’m looking forward to the opportunity to use my experiences and draw on the experiences of my colleagues to help shape what ASLA looks like for emerging professionals,” said Tyler. “I’m excited to advocate on behalf of my peers within the company, and the industry, to help grow the organization from an emerging professionals perspective.”

Tyler will focus on the recruitment and retention of associate members, as well as the development of content for ASLA publications and journals. The committee ultimately serves as a liaison between associate members and the ASLA Board of Directors.
