Prairie Gateway Chapter - Category: Service

Reaching the local, state, and national levels, Phil Meyer's exemplary volunteer efforts have focused on the challenging processes of preserving licensure of the profession, contemporizing the State of Kansas landscape architecture statutes, and ensuring that the highest possible standards are met in licensure. His representation of the chapter at licensure summits led to an appointment by the Governor to the Kansas State Board of Technical Professions, where for two years he chaired the process of updating the statutes involving five allied professions. His twelve years as the sole landscape architect representative provided him the opportunity to serve on the national level with the CLARB Board of Directors for nine years as a director, secretary, and president. He also volunteered on multiple CLARB committees and task forces aimed at improving the integrity and strength of the profession. Locally, Phil is a member of the City of Wichita Design Council, a committee of allied design professionals that reviews artistic and aesthetic elements of publicly funded projects. In 2015, Phil's hard work, perseverance, and passion was recognized with the Alton Thomas Award, the chapter's highest honor given to an individual who has performed in a manner above and beyond expectations. Phil's personality, passion, and eagerness to volunteer his time during his thirty-seven-year career have truly enhanced the profession and those who encounter him.
