President's Report

Baxter Miller, ASLA Chaptetr President

2015 – An opportunity for a new beginning. That is how I approach each New Year. The past is the past. There is nothing we can do about it. But we can use the lessons learned from our past to plan for our future.


Trustee's Report

Perry Cardoza, ASLA

I would like to start by thanking you for allowing me the opportunity to serve as your new Trustee.   The only down side is that Andy Bowden, our outgoing Trustee for the last six years, has termed-out at this position.  Over the past decade, Andy has volunteered countless hours as an unwavering advocate for our chapter, representing us on many important issues affecting our local membership as well as our profession.

  • January 7, 1930 - December 1, 2014

    Barbara Brinkerhoff, co-creator of Lifescapes International and an Orange County innovator, passed away on December 1, 2014.              

    She lived a full life and will always be remembered as a woman of great character. The 350 friends and family who attended her service at St. Andrews Presbyterian in Newport Beach, are a true testament to that fact. The Celebration luncheon, held at the Pacific Club, hosted 200 guests, with an "open mike" so that people could publicly share their experiences with Barbara. These were funny, loving and professional praises about her from those who worked and played with her throughout her long and fulfilling life.
