ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP AWARD


I.            DESCRIPTION

At the discretion of the Executive Committee of the Texas Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects, the Environmental Stewardship Award may be awarded to an individual or organization who has had a significant positive impact on environmental awareness or policy in Texas.

II.         
CRITERIA FOR ELIGIBILITY/NOMINATION
The Environmental Stewardship Award may be presented to a public or private individual or organization within Texas who is not a landscape architect, but whose activities and achievements clearly demonstrate the environmental concern and stewardship role of the landscape architecture profession and the American Society of Landscape Architects. The nominee must have provided a significant positive contribution to the protection or sound development of the Texas environment. In making this award annually, the Executive Committee will attempt to reflect a reasonable balance over time of the seemingly competing interests involved in the natural and built total environment and the varied practice of landscape architecture. The nominee’s accomplishments should already be sufficiently well publicized to serve the visibility goals of the Chapter.

III.       
METHOD OF SELECTION
Nominations will be solicited from Chapter members through the Sections, and any member may submit a nomination. Written nominations will be submitted on the nomination form provided and accompanied with a biographical data sheet not exceeding two double-spaced typewritten pages, and should carefully describe the accomplishments of the nominees. Nominees may be re-nominated until chosen, and due to the competitive nature of the selection process, it may be desirable to keep notification of the nomination as discrete as possible. The Chapter Executive Committee is the final judge of the appropriate contribution, and no submittal is guaranteed selection to receive an award. More than one Environmental Stewardship Award may be presented annually.

 DISTINGUISHED MEMBER AWARD


I.              DESCRIPTION

At the discretion of the Executive Committee of the Texas Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects, one Distinguished Member Award may be awarded annually to a member of the Texas Chapter for outstanding service to the Society and profession in Texas.

II.           
CRITERIA FOR ELIGIBILITY/NOMINATION
The Distinguished Member Award is the highest honor the Chapter can bestow locally, and is intended to correspond to the Fellow election nationally. It may be presented to a current Member of the Texas Chapter with a minimum of ten years standing with ASLA, who has made outstanding contributions to the profession of landscape architecture and to ASLA in Texas. The nominee must have provided leadership to the profession in one or more of the following ways: through quantity or quality of executed related works; administrative work in a related public agency; in related school instruction; in related speaking and writing; and/or related political or public service.  The Distinguished Member Award is intended to recognize those members whose contributions are truly significant to Texas, but are at this time perhaps not nationally significant enough to qualify for ASLA Fellowship status.

III.        
METHOD OF SELECTION
Nominations will be solicited from Chapter members through the Sections, and any member may submit a nomination. Written nominations will be submitted on the nomination form provided and accompanied with a biographical data sheet not exceeding two double-spaced typewritten pages, and should carefully describe the accomplishments of the nominees. Nominees may be re-nominated until chosen, and, due to the competitive nature of the selection process, it may be desirable to keep notification of the nomination as discrete as possible. The Chapter Executive Committee is the final judge of the appropriate contribution, and no submittal is guaranteed selection to receive an award. No more than one Distinguished Service Award will be awarded annually.
