Fellowship is among the highest honors the 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. The designation of Fellow is conferred on individuals in recognition of exceptional accomplishments over a sustained period of time. Individuals considered for this distinction must be full members of ASLA in good standing for at least ten years and must be recommended to the Council of Fellows by the Executive Committee of their local chapter, the Executive Committee of the ASLA, or the Executive Committee of the Council of Fellows.


The call for 2016 nominations is now closed. The Council of Fellows Jury met March 10-11, 2016 to make final selections. All candidates and chapter presidents have been notified. Please contact ASLA if you not received notification.

The call for 2017 will open in September 2016. Lists of eligible members will be sent to each chapter executive committee in early summer 2016. Chapter executive and/or chapter fellows committees should evaluate the lists and choose those candidates that the chapter feels are worthy of the nomination.  Ultimately, the chapter president reviews and signs off on the nomination before sending in for review by the Council jury.

The nominations will be submitted using an online submission system supported by CadmiumCD. Each submitter (chapter, committee, or individual) will need to create an account. A chapter may create one account and upload several nominations with the one account. Submissions will still require the five-page nomination template however the contact information for the nominee and chapter will be entered online rather than through the one-page nomination form previously used. Nominees will also be asked to upload a headshot separate from the five-page statement. Please contact Curt Millay (cmillay@asla.org) if you have any questions.
