Claire Martin has been elected as President of the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA), with Peta-Maree Ashford and Chris Tidswell re-elected to the respective positions of Vice-President and Company Secretary.
President Claire Martin said “I am honoured to have been re-elected to the board by AILA members, alongside incumbent Katharina Nieberler-Walker and new Director Jasmine Ong, and to have the support of my fellow Directors for the role of President. The three things that I would like to define my presidency, and our term as a board, are: collaboration, communication, and representation to ensure strong corporate governance and the prioritisation and implementation of AILA’s renewed strategic plan.”
The board will shortly be meeting to finalise revisions to the AILA Strategic Plan and will set a meeting schedule for 2020-21 to continue to ensure good governance and organisational improvements.
The board is very keen to pursue a distributed leadership model to inform AILA policy and strategic direction.
The board will continue to meet remotely while COVID-19 restrictions remain in place.
