> What are the benefits
The benefits of membership far outweigh the costs. The main benefits are briefly described below. You can find more detailed information here.
We champion your interests
The NVTL champions the interests of the profession as a whole. We do that by lobbying on specific issues together with other professional associations. To give the Association an authoritative voice in society and the political arena we need a fully representative body of members. We therefore want as many professional colleagues as possible to join us.
You receive professional support
In the current economic climate all landscape architects can benefit greatly from membership. The NVTL provides support to its members on the practical aspects of professional practice, such as employment contracts, copyright, procurement law, insurance questions and the professional experience period. We are working more closely with the BNA and BNSP to further improve and expand our professional support services.
We promote your work
The NVTL promotes the work of its individual members and affiliated practices through its website and digital newsletter. The Association also has a presence at relevant trade fairs and exhibitions with its own stand, and offers members facilities to effectively present their practice or projects at low cost.
We support your continuing professional development
Our committees organise many different activities to enhance your professional competences, sharpen your expertise and exchange ideas with colleagues. These events also give you opportunities to expand your network of professional colleagues, potential clients, policy makers and the teaching and research community.
You recieve member discounts
You can easily recoup the cost of membership from discounts on office supplies, insurances, software, pensions, the DNR 2005 (the New Rules on the legal relationship between client and architect, engineer and consultant), the journal Blauwe Kamer and registration on the Architects Register. You can find all the relevant details here.
> Who can join?
Anyone with a keen interest in garden and landscape architecture may join the Association. There are different rates for practitioners, students, job-seekers and others.
