Texas ASLA

Message from the President

 
Texas ASLA Chapter Members:

As 2017 is quickly coming to a close, your newly seated Executive Committee has hit the ground running, much due to the success of Bobby Eichholz’s leadership this last year as your Chapter President. I am grateful to have served as your President-Elect during that time, and look forward to continuing as a part of your elected leadership in 2018 as President.

2017 was a tremendous success for Texas ASLA. We saw our Chapter leadership tackle two advocacy efforts that included the education of our profession at the State Capitol, and another that preemptively aligned ourselves with the similar interests of allied professions to defend against a threat to municipal and jurisdictional authorities to write local ordinances and govern themselves during the summer’s Special Session of the State Legislative.

Texas Member assuming roles with National

Lisa Horne, PLA, ASLA, in Dallas, Texas, assumed leadership as the national ASLA Professional Practice Network Council Chair for 2017-2018. She has volunteered with PPN since 2010 through early involvement in activating the Children’s Outdoor Environments PPN, one of the most prolific and active PPNs within ASLA. ASLA has approximately 15,000 members and each ASLA membership offers a free membership for one PPN. There are a total of just over 13,000 member counts within the PPNs with some potential overlap for individuals in more than one PPN. These 20 networks provide opportunities to connect with like-minded experts and delve deeper on specific topics from Digital Technology to Water Conservation to Campus Planning and Design and more. In 2017, the PPNs collectively published 82 posts to The Field, the PPN blog, with an average of 258 views per day and hosted over 10 online learning presentations. As Chair, Lisa advises ASLA staff on quarterly conference calls and the PPN Council Meeting at the Annual Meeting. Her emphasis for 2018 is to mentor incoming PPN chairs and activate PPNs to develop more robust leadership teams and further increase content and discussion. If you are interested in further involvement or leadership within one of the many PPNs, please contact her at lhorne@studiooutside.us.
