Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA)

Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA)

AILA is the non-profit professional institute formed to serve the mutual interests of its members and the wider profession throughout Australia.

The governance of AILA is vested in the National Council, which retains ultimate legal responsibility for the organisation and provides leadership by setting goals, budgets, policies and performance targets.

The organisation of the AILA is based on a federal system with a National Council and eight state/territory groups. AILA State/Territory Groups are Committees of Council appointed to represent the profession, the Institute and its members within the State. The State Groups provide a forum and focus for the activities of members, carry out the work of the Institute at State and local level and promote the aims and objects of the Institute.

National Office located in Canberra is responsible for coordinating the delivery of membership services, implementation of National Council decisions and collaboration with the State Groups that serve AILA members at a local level.

Services include advocacy, education, continuing professional development, communications, environment and community liaison. Key programs are the AILA national and state web sites, Landmark (the national broadsheet) and state newsletters, national conferences, national and state awards and regular communication.
