This month we say goodbye to one of our chapter board members. ASLA Southern California thanks Angela Woodward for all her work and dedication to the chapter over the last 10+ years. Angela has served on the executive committee in several positions including two terms as Chapter President, and, most recently, as Vice President of Programs. Angela is a seasoned professional with over thirty years practicing landscape architecture in California and Arizona. She has specialized in municipality projects and infrastructure projects. Her experience covers a wide range of public projects from universities and college campuses to elementary schools, streetscapes and Caltrans highways, transit oriented development, Metro Link stations and multimodal bus rapid transit stations, parks, recreation and trails, military base reuse, ecosystem restoration and habitat mitigation, public safety facilities, sustainable development and learning resource centers. Currently, Angela is a Senior Associate at IMA Design, Newport Beach.
Continuing her passion for landscape architecture, Angela is an educator, mentoring the next generation of emerging professionals to obtain their license by teaching Landscape Architecture Registration Exam (LARE) review courses at UCLA. She also serves as a member of ASLA National's LARE Committee who works to train, educate, and prepare emerging professionals to pass the national license exam.
Again, we thank Angela Woodward for her dedication and service to the ASLA Southern California Chapter!
Registration for the annual meeting and EXPO has increased to 2,394 as of today. As a point of comparison, registration was at 892 as of 14 weeks prior to 2012/Phoenix; 1,111 as of this point in 2011/San Diego; and 645 in 2010/Washington, D.C. Registration and ticket revenue now totals 68 percent of the annual budget goal. The official hotels are almost booked solid, with the Westin (headquarters) already sold out, so members are encouraged to register and book their hotel rooms as soon as possible.
On August 1, ASLA released the 2013 ASLA Salary Survey Report. Only members have access to ordering the custom salary survey reports. The survey covers salaries, bonuses, total compensation, and benefits for landscape architecture positions in the private, public, and academic sectors. Members can order a custom a report to match criteria important to them by choosing from more than 10 filters including: job title, geographic location (city, metro area, or state), organization/business type, number of employees, years of experience, education and training, skills and credentials. Since the release, 26 custom reports have been ordered. The member-only discounted price is $99.
The 2013 Year of Public Service has been established by the American Society of Landscape Architects' (ASLA) Public Awareness Campaign to highlight the wide-reaching public service activities readily performed by landscape architects and to advocate for a higher commitment by all to community service projects.
The ASLA Southern California Chapter soon begins a new year of exciting opportunities. There are many opportunities available for our members who want to volunteer. If you are new to ASLA and are looking for ways to get involved, or even if you have a member for many years and feel the time may be right to volunteer -- we have a fit for you! Please contact Vicki Phillipy @ 714-838-3615.

Purchase a Frederick Law Olmsted Video
The video is based on Don Marquardt’s popular live stage presentation of Frederick Law Olmsted’s life and accomplishments, this 37-minute video concentrates on Olmsted’s early life influences, many failures trying to find a successful career, and then his providential partnering with architect Calvert Vaux and their wonderful creation of New York City’s Central Park.
This fascinating and frustrating project not only created one of the most popular parks in the world, but finally launched Olmsted’s glorious career – which he and Vaux named Landscape Architecture.
