A message from Espe Kelly, AILA Member

28 November 2022

Hello Queensland:

Wow what a year.  Hard to believe that December is here in just a couple of days.   So much happened it is hard to even remember but between covid, floods, Queen passing, new King we have had some fun events throughout the year   A big thank you to our sponsors.  It is because of you that we can enjoy these events throughout the year.  These events are not only fun but educational and a great way to connect with our colleagues.  I know for me these events have helped me connect with some new friends and reconnect with friends that I hadn’t seen in years.   With all the crazy of 2022 I am thankful for the connections which have been made.

I just wanted to take a moment and give a big shout out to the QFresh chairs Sara Eckermann and Skye Reid for all your hard work putting together some good events this year.  I personally attended most of them and I thought they were fantastic.  Thank you to all the practices that supported these events.  Without you it would not have been such as successful year.  We look forward to next year and if you would like to sponsor an event reach out to Sara and Skye or via [email protected].

There are still a couple more events not to be missed.  AILA QLD 2022 Karl Langer Award and End of the year Celebration (8th of Dec), AILA & PIA End of the year Celebration (30th of Nov) and AILA SUN Mooloolaba Foreshore and End of the Year Event (15th Dec).  Grab some work mates and celebrate the end of 2022. 

Wishing everyone a wonderful break and look forward to connecting with everyone in 2023.  

Ps.  Congratulations to all the new Registered Landscape Architects.  Well done.
