Congratulations to the 2011 President's Award Winners!

Michigan ASLA is proud to present the recipients of its 2011 President’s Awards.  Since 2006, the Chapter has accepted nominations for these four prestigious awards, and has elected the most outstanding and deserving nominee for each category.  This year, we have honored three individuals and one firm, each outstanding in their category.


Distinguished Member Award: Pam Blough, FASLA

The Distinguished Member of the Year award recognizes a significant Michigan ASLA current or past volunteer that makes contributions to the Society and to our profession through volunteerism and education.  This individual gives time and resources year after year, and encourages others to volunteer within the Society and the community to spread the profession of landscape architecture.

This year’s Distinguished Member of the Year is Pam Blough, FASLA.

Outstanding Firm of the Year: Michael J. Dul & Associates, Inc.

The Outstanding Firm of the Year award is given to a firm selected for continued outstanding design and support of our profession. 

This year’s Outstanding Firm of the Year is Michael J. Dul & Associates, Inc. 

Emerging Professional of the Year: Joane Slusky, Associate ASLA

The Emerging Professional of the Year award honors a landscape designer/landscape architect in the first ten years of their career for significant contributions or significant works of design.

This year’s Emerging Professional of the Year is Joane Slusky, Associate ASLA.

Honor Award: Representative Greg MacMaster, District 105

The final President’s Award is the Honor Award.  This award is the highest award given by the Chapter to an individual that is not a landscape architect, for significant support of landscape architects, community design, the profession or the environment.

Representative Greg MacMaster is this year’s recipient.

Practice Act -- How You Can Support the Effort

To:    All interested in the advancement of the Landscape Architecture Profession

From:  Government Affairs Committee of the Michigan Chapter of the ASLA

RE:    MASLA - Fund raising for Landscape Architects of Michigan Political Action Committee 

We need your support for our long-term goal as we move from our current title act to a practice act for the landscape architecture profession in Michigan. 

There are myriad steps that we must make now that our legislation has passed into law.  Please help us toward our goal of implementation and true equality with our sister professions by contributing to our Political Action Committee fund.

Please send your contribution to:

Landscape Architects of Michigan PAC
1000 W. St. Joseph Hwy., Suite 200
Lansing, MI  48915

Personal Checks Only.  No corporate checks.

Download the PAC contribution card


The first step is to educate the public: legislators, clients or anyone that may not be clear on the profession.  Do you need help?

These are the key events and programs scheduled so far this year.  Mark your calendars and keep your eyes open for future details.  We'd also like to thank all the volunteers and sponsors who are helping to make these events a great success.  If you have any questions about any of these events or suggestions for future events, please feel free to contact Christy Summers , Michigan ASLA Chapter President .
