Lindy has given her time generously to AILA. In 1998 she worked on the committee for AILA’s biannual conference, Remaking Landscape, held in Sydney. For the last 10 years she has been and continues to be on panels conducting final interviews for candidates for membership/registration. This demonstrates her commitment and support for our profession and to students and other potential AILA members. As a small practitioner it is often difficult to get the recognition deserved for so many years of dedication and hard work making a significant contribution to our profession as their efforts are often done in the background. The fellowship is awarded to Lindy Lean for her high level of commitment and advocacy for the profession and particularly her dedication to AILA, its philosophy and its goals.

Undeniably David is an authentic selfless person, a leader in his community, a husband and father, a friend, a talented professional, a mentor, an advocate, and a subscriber of “lifelong learning” - which is evident in his continual self-initiated education that is focused on personal development, for the advancement of his profession.
Suzie has been awarded a Fellowship by the AILA Board for the outstanding contribution she has made to the profession of Landscape Architecture and her dedication to AILA.
