    •   Preparations for Advocacy Day and the midyear meetings of the Board of Trustees and Chapter Presidents Council are fully underway. To streamline midyear meeting emails, one “midyear moment” email will be sent per week with all relevant BOT, CPC, and advocacy information, links, and deadlines.  Please note that the usual pre-BOT meeting webinars will take place on March 31 and April 2; both at 1 p.m. EDT. Details and agenda to come. There are also two webinars scheduled to help advocates prepare for Advocacy Day; April 16 and April 23, both at 2 p.m. EDT. 

     

    •   President Elect Chad Danos, FASLA, spoke at the Louisiana Chapter’s annual meeting last week where he discussed ASLA's programs and priorities with a special focus on advocacy and the creation of ASLA's Center for Landscape Architecture. In addition to the overview of ASLA, he outlined the chapter's new advocacy initiative to increase its outreach to municipalities and state agencies on licensure and restraints to practice. 

     

    •   Also, PE Danos visited studios as a guest juror at the LSU School of Landscape Architecture, met with the student chapter leaders and discussed ways to increase student participation. Danos concluded the day with a pizza party where he spoke about the benefits of being an ASLA member.

     

    •   Last Friday, EVP Nancy Somerville, Hon. ASLA, was the keynote speaker at the Kentucky Chapter’s annual meeting. Somerville’s presentation focused on resiliency. She also visited Human Nature, a landscape architecture firm in Cincinnati, and met with staff of 3CDC (Center City Cincinnati Development Corporation) to hear about redevelopment and significant landscape architecture projects in the city and region.   

     

    •   EVP Somerville met with Urban Land Institute (ULI) CEO Patrick Phillips recently to share information regarding organizational priorities and operations.  Phillips will be representing ULI at the midyear BOT/CPC lunch.  The lunch program will repeat last year’s Pecha Kucha-inspired format for organizational reports, but with a focus on emerging professionals and diversity issues

     

    •   The call for 2015 Council of Fellows nominations closed last Friday.  Between 90-100 nominations were received, are being processed, and will be sent out to jurors in the coming weeks. The jury will convene May 7-8 at ASLA headquarters.

    •   Government Affairs Manager Mark Cason and Legislative Analyst Leighton Yates participated in the Sustainable Urban Forest Coalition (SUFC) annual meeting, which had nearly 50 attendees representing more than 35 national NGOs, professional associations, private sector companies, and federal agencies. The meeting provided an opportunity to review the previous year’s priorities pertaining to policy, research and development, and strategic engagement, and also included presentations from an array of federal and private sector organizations on ways to promote the coalition’s policy goals and objectives to various audiences.

     

    •   Manager Cason and Analyst Yates organized a meeting with the Pollinator Partnership to discuss reintroduction of the Highway BEE Act, which promotes conservation and improved habitat for pollinators on state managed rights-of-way. The meeting also provided an opportunity to discuss additional collaborations during Pollinator Week in June.
