News from AILA Victoria Chapter 14 April 2023

Dear Members,

I hope you are all well and managed to take a breather, or have some time away over this Easter school holiday period. Autumn is upon us – cooler mornings, balmy afternoons and the promise of good gardening weather to prepare for the winter. 
April kicked off with the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show, which saw a few of our members exhibiting, and showcasing some fabulous designs. Congratulations to our Chapter President Matt York, who received the Bronze Show Garden Award!

April is also marking World Landscape Architecture Month (#WLAM2023). Initiated by ASLA, AILA National have been encouraging members to participate and have set up a series of daily prompts for posting on social media. It is a great way to highlight our profession, and it’s not too late to get involved and start posting. I’ve been posting a few responses to the daily prompts, and it has been really great to reflect on what those prompts mean to me and how they might communicate to others the breadth of our profession.  
The AILA Awards process is well underway, and we thank all the members who have submitted entries for this year’s Victorian and Tasmanian Chapter AILA Awards – keep an eye on upcoming events for the date of the Victorian Awards Entries Reveal e-booklet showcasing all the entries.
There are as always, many other terrific events and webinars hosted by AILA, so I encourage you to take a look at the upcoming events and sign up for those that might interest you.   

Lisa Howard, AILA Vic Executive
