State Association Report
The 2020 INASLA year actually began last fall at the annual planning retreat where the Executive Committee met to discuss our approach to advocacy, membership, social events, sponsorship and the Chapter budget. Little did we know what 2020 had in store for us...
As the leaves began to change, INASLA participated in the Indianapolis Monumental Awards by having a Chapter member serve on the awards jury. We also had a couple of landscape architecture firms win awards - REA won a Monumental Award and Mader Design won the People's Choice award.
In November, our very own April Westcott received the ASLA Outstanding Service Award at the National Conference on Landscape Architecture!
Over the winter we continued the tradition of the Annual INASLA Holiday party and held a number of lunch-and-learns for Chapter members looking to earn CEU's. We also supported both Purdue and Ball State by participating in portfolio reviews, mock interviews and job fairs at both schools.
Even though COVID-19 was ramping up, this spring was a very busy time for the Chapter. We were able to, once again, join the AIA in celebrating our newly licensed professionals in a combined ceremony in Indianapolis with awkward fist bumps instead of handshakes as we were all settling into the new normal.
