Press Release: The American Society of Landscape Architects
The American Society of Landscape Architects has elevated 37 members to the ASLA Council of Fellows for 2015. Fellowship is among the highest honors the ASLA bestows on members and recognizes the contributions of these individuals to their profession and society at large based on their works, leadership and management, knowledge and service. The new class of Fellows will be recognized at the 2015 ASLA Annual Meeting and EXPO, November 6-9, in Chicago.
The designation of Fellow is conferred on individuals in recognition of exceptional accomplishments over a sustained period of time. Individuals considered for this distinction must be members of ASLA in good standing for at least 10 years and must be recommended to the Council of Fellows by the Executive Committee of their local chapter, the Executive Committee of ASLA or the Executive Committee of the Council of Fellows.

Meg Storrow, a founding principal of storrow|kinsella, received her nomination from the Indiana Chapter of ASLA. For 30 years, Storrow has worked with community groups and professional organizations to improve neighborhoods and advance the profession of landscape architecture. Her brand of service and advocacy centers on enhancing the system from within. She gets involved in a neighborhood, organization, or board, then applies her professional skills, sociability and work ethic to better the entire community. She has participated in at least one pro bono meeting nearly every week of her entire career. At times, her volunteer workload has exceeded 30 hours per week, rivaling her full-time landscape architectural practice. Her service has positively affected a wide range of people and professions through such efforts as forest and watershed preservation, support for the Indiana licensure act and neighborhood advocacy.

The Fellows Investiture Ceremony in Chicago was a lot of fun! Charles Birnbaum was Meg's escort, and President Richard Zweifel presented the Fellows Medallion. The Indiana Chapter ASLA supported Meg and John by joining them at a table filled with fellow Indiana landscape architects. Many thanks to all that supported Meg's nomination!
