The Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA) champions quality design for public open spaces, stronger communities and greater environmental stewardship.
We provide our members – in urban and rural Australia, and overseas – with training, recognition and a community of practice to share knowledge, ideas and action.
With our members, we anticipate and develop a leading position on issues of concern in landscape architecture. Alongside government and allied professions, we work to improve the design, planning and management of the natural and built environment.
AILA represents over 3,500 (and growing) members throughout Australia and overseas. As a not-for-profit professional association, our role is to serve the mutual interests of our members and the wider profession.
AILA governance is vested in the AILA National Board, which retains ultimate legal responsibility for the whole organisation and provides leadership by setting the strategic direction, budgets, policies and agendas. AILA staff, located in the national office in Canberra and in state and territory chapters throughout the country, are responsible for advocacy, coordinating the delivery of membership services, and implementation of the AILA Strategic and Operational plan and council and local executive decisions.
