I am honoured to accept the position of President of the Irish Landscape Institute for 2021.
For those of you who do not know me, I am a landscape architect working in private practice, a director of JBA Consulting and a graduate of Edinburgh College of Art.
I would first like to acknowledge the contribution made by Kevin during his presidency and all that he has achieved.
With everything hopefully opening up soon, the ILI Council hopes to stimulate discussion on current issues affecting our profession and as soon as possible reintroduce live events, both of a social and an educational nature. Working with the ILI Council I feel it would be a good time to understand how the Institute can best advance the profession in Ireland and internationally through IFLA Europe.
With that in mind, I will be contacting as many of you as possible to find out your thoughts and possible inputs to the work of the Institute and to ask you what you would like me to achieve on your behalf.
President, Irish Landscape Institute
