23nd February 2022
It's hard to believe that we are about to enter the 3rd month of the year already, it seems that times flies during a pandemic.
March is looking to be a busy month, don’t forget all AILA Award entries are due March 8th so keep them coming in. We are looking forward to celebrating all the amazing work Landscape Architects have been doing across NSW. Also don’t forget to nominate a Future Leader that deserves recognition, its important to give credit and support our young Landscape Architects as they move through the profession.
March 8th is also International Women’s Day where we celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. Be sure to tag @aila_nsw in your campaigns so we can showcase the significant contributions of our women members have made to the profession of landscape architecture and the creation of places for people to live, work and love.
The NSW Executive team have been meeting with PIA and AIA to discuss the draft Design and Place SEPP. We are currently drafting our submission and are looking to ensure that Landscape Architecture is clearly defined and supported in the legislation.
Speaking of advocacy, have you considered joining the advocacy or Heritage groups? If so, now is great time to be part of AILA, keep an eye out for EOI opening soon. If you have any questions, please get in touch at [email protected] or ask colleagues on Memberscape.
We are looking forward to partnering with our NSW Partner Co-Ordinated Landscapes for the guided tour of Glebe Foreshore. This is now sold out and due to interest, we are looking at planning a similar event, get in touch if you have any ideas!
Until next time, take care and have a fabulous March.
