ASLA Council of Fellows

Fellowship is among the highest honors the ASLA bestows on members and recognizes the contributions of these individuals to their profession and society at large based on their works, leadership and management, knowledge, and service. The designation of Fellow is conferred on individuals in recognition of exceptional accomplishments over a sustained period of time. Individuals considered for this distinction must be full members of ASLA in good standing for at least ten years and must be recommended to the Council of Fellows by the Executive Committee of their local chapter, the Executive Committee of the ASLA, or the Executive Committee of the Council of Fellows.


The 2020 call for nominations is now closed. Final submissions were due Friday, January 31, 2020. The COF Jury met on April 17 to make final decisions.  Notifications of results to candidates and chapter committees will begin in late May/early June.

The Council of Fellows Executive Committee held a webinar on preparing nominations.  Please use the following links to access the recording and the presentation:
