Landscape Contractors Association (LCA)
MD • DC • VA


The Landscape Contractors Association had extensive plans and goals with insufficient resources to carry them out.


The Landscape Contractors Association was MSP's first client. Since contracting with MSP, LCA has matured and grown by leaps and bounds. We have taken them through three rounds of Strategic Planning, moved into strategic governance, and begun legislative efforts. MSP administers an extremely successful certification program and a recognized public, as well as industry, awards program. We created a new brand for LCA and are now redesigning LCA's website. We redesigned LCA's newsletter into a 4-color monthly magazine, developed a Marketing Plan and are running ad campaigns to different target markets. We have created dynamic educational programs, now with education sessions in English and Spanish. LCA membership has doubled, is now stable—despite mergers and acquisitions—and conference attendance has grown from 200+ to almost 800.
