What Members are Saying About OLCA


"OLCA gives you the change to get better acquainted with your peers at regular chapter meetings.  This is a great opportunity to socialize, learn and grow in a relaxed atmosphere."

"As an associate member (vender) of OLCA, it has been proven in many ways that being involved with this organization is a tremendous tool for developing relationships, exposing customers to our products and services, and increasing the market for our products!  I couldn't imagine us being in the market without being a part of OLCA.  Of course, it is important
to get involved."
- Jim Vachter

"For my money, OLCA is Oregon's best source of statewide industry information, networking and professional landscape development.  It continues to be an important leader in the development and growing success of the internationally recognized Certified Landscape Technician (CLT) program.  OLCA membership builds professional credibility, gives us an active political voice within the business community, and provides a solid list of benefit programs and events in which its members may participate."
