April 20, 2011

Interested in landscape architecture and don’t have a family or business connection with the industry? Here’s your chance. The landscape architecht board has a vacancy for its public member position.

The public member provides an important perspective: they offer a view that is sometimes difficult to see as a member of the profession and they advocate for the public as a whole.

The Landscape Architect Board examines candidates for licensure, holds disciplinary hearings, and recommends adoption of rules and regulations. The board meets 4 times a year and members serve 6-year terms. They’re entitled to reimbursement for their travel expenses and receive a small stipend as compensation for their service.
