Trustee's Message - October



Dear Friends,

In preparation of this year’s Board of Trustees meeting in Los Angeles I have prepared a bulletin list of agenda items for your review and input. If you would like to discuss background information on any of these subjects or recommend to me your preferences on the voting issues please email me in the next two weeks for discussion. In the meantime I am attending preparation webinars to get ready and engaging in open forums to contribute to the general discussion and broaden my perspective on the current issues. The agenda includes:

  • Approval of the 2018 Annual Operating Plan

  • Finance and Investments report

  • 2018-2019 Operating Budget

  • 2018-2019 Capital Expense Budget

  • Rebranding Update

  • Use of ASLA Name and Logo

  • International Student Membership

  • ASLA Fund

  • Strategic Objectives

  • Blue Ribbon Panel on Climate Change: Next Steps

  • Approval of revisions and updates to Public Policies related to Coastal Zones and Agriculture

As a member of the Policy Committee I worked on the revisions to the Coastal Zones and Agriculture policies and am looking forward to the presentations to the Board of Trustees. After the conference I will report out on all of the actions taken by the board and share with you my experiences at the ASLA Annual Meeting. One of the highlights of this year’s meeting is the induction of Maryland’s very own Emma Skalka of Victor Stanley as an Honorary Landscape Architect. Please join me in congratulating her on this well-deserved honor. Thanks for your continued support and input.

Dennis R. Nola, PLA, ASLA
