Three Members Awarded for Outstanding Service

At the Chicago Annual Meeting, ASLA celebrated James D. Burnett, FASLA; Stephanie Rolley, FASLA; and Chris Stevens, ASLA, for exemplary service on the Society’s behalf. ASLA 2015 President K. Richard Zweifel, FASLA, and Executive Vice President and CEO Nancy Somerville, Hon. ASLA, presented the awards.

James D. Burnett, FASLA, California San Diego Chapter, has been a strong advocate for the ASLA Center for Landscape Architecture. He formed a fundraising task force comprised of industry leaders and agreed to serve as its chair. Burnett also made one of the first major contributions to the campaign. To keep momentum going, he is identifying prospects, making personal calls and pitches and encouraging others on the task force to do the same. In addition to fundraising, Burnett is serving as one of a core group of advisors to assist with the design development of the ASLA Center. His work has been critical to the success of the project and, because of his dedication and commitment, ASLA will be able to realize its new Center and create a landmark for the profession.

Stephanie Rolley, FASLA, Prairie Gateway Chapter, is serving as the chair of Landscape Architectural Accreditation Board (LAAB). Rolley has been a strong and effective voice for the landscape architecture education community through all of her years of service to ASLA. Her leadership with LAAB this past year, during a period of transition, has been exemplary and in many ways transformative. She has set LAAB on a course to be a much more data-driven organization, one that is better prepared to assemble and share information with a variety of constituents, and to guide the community of academic practitioners toward advancing educational practice on a national, and increasingly global, scale.

Chris Stevens, ASLA, Maryland Chapter, is a leading advocate for the Historic American Landscapes Survey’s (HALS) mission to record historic landscapes in the United States and its territories through measured drawings and interpretive drawings, written histories and large-format black and white photographs and color photographs. He has been involved at the leadership level with both HALS and the ASLA Historic Preservation Professional Practice Network, and is currently chair of the HALS subcommittee and HALS chapter liaison coordinator. As historical landscape architect at the National Park Service (NPS), Stevens is a crucial link between ASLA, NPS, and the Library of Congress, all of whom signed a memorandum of understanding in 2001 and an updated tripartite agreement in 2010 to collaboratively work to fulfill HALS’ mission.
