welcome, one and all thank you for a year of success Welcome to the St. Louis Chapter ASLA Annual Awards Celebration! The Chapter had a very busy and successful 2017. We have much to celebrate and to be proud of, as the leading organization for the landscape architecture profession in the Saint Louis region. Our Chapter has grown in

membership and sophistication over the past year. We were recognized this Fall at the Annual Chapter President’s Council Meetings, by being listed in the top five of chapters nationwide, for percentage of membership growth. Our chapter has also expanded and improved the chapter awards process, which has resulted in more submittals and more of a variety of project types submitted for recognition. The Chapter held many events throughout the year including

activities for advocacy and World Landscape Architecture Month in the Spring. Summer time saw the first showing of the new Gateway Film Series, the Annual Golf and happy hours. The Fall brought numerous events during St. Louis Design Week last October. From social events, sketch crawls, films and lectures, the Chapter offered many opportunities for involvement and professional development.

We are fortunate to have the leadership of a very dedicated Executive Committee, including the wonderful guidance and leadership of Trustee Scott Emmelkamp and Executive Director Elizabeth Graff. Our new president, Cory Murner is bringing new ideas and energy to the Chapter, already showing great leadership for the coming year. Todd Teuscher has provided excellent service to the Chapter in the role of

Treasurer and Susan Maag continues to be a national leader in her role as Vice President of Advocacy. The vibrancy of our Chapter is only possible through the sponsorship and collaboration with our wonderful business partners. We truly appreciate all of their support of the St. Louis Chapter. As a long-time member of the Chapter, I am proud of the accomplishments and

status of our organization. The Chapter has been recognized both locally and nationally for our efforts as a professional society. Our members are involved in major projects, in our region, from new public spaces in Grand Center and on the Mississippi Riverfront to downtown revitalization efforts in Columbia and Cape Girardeau, Missouri and beyond, enhancing the future of communities through landscape architecture.

“An important fact is that in the last six years, licensure has been challenged three times in Missouri.� is that in the last six years, licensure has been challenged three times in Missouri and the current administration is reviewing state boards for fiscal responsibility and overlap. Nationally, there have been four legislative attempts to deregulate licensure and numerous threats to licensure reform. Our annual advocacy day event is a disciplined effort to educate the representatives about landscape architecture and reduce the threat of

deregulation in Missouri.

How Can You Participate in the Process? The year

2001 marked a monumental effort to obtain licensure for the practice of landscape architecture in Missouri. You can help us be proactive in retaining licensure by designating an advocacy liaison from your firm to make the annual trip to Jefferson City to talk with legislators.

Remember, St. Louis ASLA spends a lot of time and resources each year to defend licensure and promote the profession. Please consider becoming a part of advocacy and a supporting member of ASLA.
