WASHINGTON, DC, October 10, 2005– The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) has inducted 41 landscape architects to its Council of Fellows, a designation that acknowledges extraordinary work, leadership, knowledge, and service to the landscape architecture profession over a sustained period of time. It is one of the highest honors ASLA may confer upon a landscape architect. The new Fellows were formally inducted during the ASLA Annual Meeting in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on Saturday, October 8, 2005.
Fellows are nominated in one of four categories: works of landscape architecture; administrative work; knowledge; and service to the profession. This year, 20 chapters are represented, with the Potomac and Florida Chapters each boasting four new Fellows and Southern California, Northern California, Boston, and Maryland with three.
"This is a new era of involvement and advocacy for the Council of Fellows and the 2005 Class certainly lives up to that billing,” said Robert Weygand, FASLA, chair of the Council of Fellows. “Each of these new members has a rich background in advancing our Society and our roles as stewards of our planet.”
