This past Sunday in Minneapolis, ASLA inducted 48 members into the Council of Fellows at the ASLA Conference on Landscape Architecture’s Investiture Dinner.

Fellowship is among the highest honors ASLA bestows on members and recognizes the contributions of these individuals to their profession and society at large based on their works, leadership and management, knowledge, and service.

To be eligible for nomination, an individual must:

  • Be a current ASLA Full Member or International Member in good standing.
  • Have achieved at least 10 continuous years of FULL membership at the time of nomination.
  • Have demonstrated exceptional contributions over an extended period of time.
  • Have made a significant positive impact on the public and the profession.

Nominations may be made by the executive committee of a chapter, the executive committee of ASLA, or the executive committee of the Council of Fellows in one of four categories:

Contact your local chapter if you meet the criteria and are interested. The deadline for nominations to the Council of Fellows is January 15, 2024.

New this year: there is now the option to submit images with the Knowledge, Leadership/Management, and Service categories. For these categories, a nominee may submit up to 10 images relevant to their nomination. The Works category still requires a 20-image presentation.

In addition, the category descriptions, criteria for jury review, and submission requirements have been edited for clarity. The templates for submission have not changed.

Watch Demystifying the Fellows Nomination Process to learn what you need to know if you are interested in being nominated and best practices on preparing nominations. This webinar was hosted last fall with the goal of making the process more transparent and to encourage nominees who reflect the diversity of the profession.
