Together we are stronger, and your membership not only increases the impact of our efforts, but provides you a direct say in the strategic direction of AILA through our committees, chapter executives and board. 

Why join?

Do what you couldn’t do alone. Join the largest community of landscape architects in Australia. Our members benefit from professional development, recognition, and access to a community of likeminded experts who come together to share knowledge, ideas and action.



The role of landscape architecture is valued and understood by all levels of government.

AILA advocates to government at all levels on behalf of the profession, whether it be local planning decisions, state-based planning guidelines or federal policy on skilled migration your professional association ensures landscape architecture has a seat at the policy table. 



The role of landscape architecture is valued and understood by the built environment profession and the communities in which we live. 

Through standout programs, such as the AILA national awards program, and our work with climate positive design, connection to country and gender equity, we demonstrate leadership within the built environment profession while at the same time educating the public on the role that landscape architects play in design spaces to become places. 



Australia’s landscape architecture programs, and student and academic communities are sustained and bolstered. 

AILA is the accreditation of body for Australia’s 9 landscape architect programs and works closely with these universities to ensure there is a growing domestic supply chain for qualified entrants to the profession. AILA’s CPD program meets the news of a growing and increasingly complex profession. AILA provides a myriad of opportunities for members to improve their knowledge across a range of relevant topics and this is set to only increase as our new CPD curriculum is finalized and implemented. 



AILA understands and is responsive to the needs of its members. The value proposition for membership for all landscape architects is increasing. 

AILAs Strategic Plan is based on feedback and insights from our members along with continuing monitoring of the external operating environment. In implementing our strategic objectives, we rely on members via our committees, chapter executives and board to inform the implementation of our plan and development of our annual operation plan. Put simply, the best way to gain value from your membership, is to get involved.
