ANNOUNCING THE 2017 ASLA-NY CALL FOR NOMINATIONS!

Are you interested in getting more involved in your profession by joining the board of the New York Chapter of ASLA?  We are now accepting nominations for our Executive Committee (i.e., board members), Trustee and Secretary.  Being a board member is a great way to promote the field of landscape architecture as well as impact the professional community.  Help guide the direction of your chapter, develop great relationships with other landscape architects and have an impact on the future of the profession in the New York metro area.  And it’s fun!
We are looking for five motivated individuals to join the board for a two-year term, as well one new Officer to fill a two-year term as Secretary and another individual to fill a three-year term as Trustee.  The board meets 10 times a year and members are encouraged to chair committees and attend chapter events.
Board members must have current ASLA membership – join or renew now by visiting asla.org. Prior involvement on a chapter committee is preferred. If you have questions on roles, term length, or time commitments, please contact Kathy Shea at [email protected].
If you are interested in running for the board, or for Trustee or Secretary, please email a statement of interest (max 300 words) to [email protected].  Our Nominating Committee will evaluate the submissions and notify you about next steps.
Statements of interest are due by June 18.  The election will be held in July and your term would begin in late October, after the annual ASLA Annual Meeting.
