ASLA has installed Emily O’Mahoney, FASLA, PLA, as its president for the 2022-2023 term. O’Mahoney was sworn in as the 78th president and the 12th woman president during the President's Dinner at the ASLA 2022 Conference on Landscape Architecture in San Francisco. She succeeds Eugenia Martin, FASLA.

In her remarks, O’Mahoney acknowledged the support of family, colleagues, and the ASLA Florida chapter where she has been serving for many years. She looks forward to this coming year to continue the momentum spearheaded in the strategic plan presented at last year’s conference. Under the talented and visionary leadership of both the ASLA team and dedicated volunteers, we will continue to move forward with a wide array of initiatives.

She closed the evening emphasizing “don’t be left out…. we are heading towards a world where everyone knows what landscape architecture is. Just IMAGINE! A better world through landscape architecture. We are moving to make a difference. A difference to membership, a difference to the profession, an asset to climate change action, and a difference to the world.”

Emily received her BLA from the University of Florida and has been in private practice since 1980. For the last 20 years she has been a partner at 2GHO in Jupiter, Florida, planning and designing award winning and sustainable spaces, places, and communities.
