LAF Executive Director, Board Member Named as ASLA Fellows
Congratulations to LAF Executive Director Barbara Deutsch and LAF Board Vice President of Research Forster Ndubisi who were named Fellows-elect by the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA). They are among 33 ASLA members designated as Fellows in 2012, in recognition of exceptional accomplishments over a sustained period of time.
The group will be officially inducted into the ASLA Council of Fellows on Sept 30 during the 2012 ASLA Annual Meeting & Expo in Phoenix. Being named a Fellow is among the highest honors a landscape architect may receive. Fellowship recognizes contributions to the profession and society at large based on their works, leadership and management, knowledge, and service.
Barbara was nominated by the Potomac Chapter in the Leadership/Management Category for her efforts to put the profession at the front and center of collaborative sustainability. Forster, Professor and Head of the Department of Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning at Texas A&M University, was nominated by the Texas Chapter in the Knowledge Category for his role in finding interconnecting threads in the current cross-disciplinary body of knowledge on sustainability as a scholar, educator, academic practitioner, and distinguished administrator.
Congrats to all 33 Fellows-elect!
