ASLA Council of Fellows

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 2024 Call for Nominations is now open and will close on January 15, 2024.  New this year is 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.

Please see instructions for categories and submission requirements.  Also, when the nomination is complete, you must upload all your materials using the online submission system.

On October 27 we presented Demystifying the Fellows Nomination Process, a webinar to learn what you need to know if you are interested in being nominated and best practices on preparing nominations. The goal of the webinar is to increase transparency in the process and to encourage nominees who reflect the diversity of the profession.  Please watch!

To view a previous webinar from 2017 on preparing nominations,  please use the following links to access the recording and the presentation:
