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 call for 2017 is now closed. Final submissions were due to ASLA on Friday, January 20, 2017. The COF Jury met on March 24, 2017 to make final selections.  Notification results are still being prepared. All candidates should be notified by May 5, 2017.  Notifications will go to both the individual candidates and the corresponding chapter presidents and Fellow committee chairs.

 Please contact Curt Millay (cmillay@asla.org) if you have any questions.
