Question: Why should I become a Student Affiliate of the Manitoba Association of Landscape Architects, and what is the process for applying?
Your involvement as a Student Affiliate of the Manitoba Association of Landscape Architects will keep you up to date with important issues affecting the profession of landscape architecture. MALA’s pursuit of provincial legislation for The Landscape Architects Act and other important membership initiatives will impact your career now and in the future.
The Association sponsors various events throughout the year, including an annual exhibit/reception organized by the students, the CSLA Professional Awards, and the MALA Annual General Meeting. These occasions present excellent opportunities to network with practitioners and other professional members of MALA and CSLA. In addition, Student Affiliates receive all membership mailings and communications of the Association, including the Annual Report, Member Firm Roster, and the monthly MALA eLetter.
Student Affiliates have the privilege of attending and participating in membership meetings, and are eligible to serve on various committees. The elected Student Affiliates Rep has a vote on MALA Council and serves to represent your interests and concerns.
To qualify as a Student Affiliate of MALA, an individual must be enrolled in a recognized degree program of landscape architecture or a related field. MALA fees are generally collected and remitted each fall through the Landscape Architecture Students Association (LASA) at the University of Manitoba, but it is not mandatory to be a member of both organizations.
If a student is interested in joining MALA as a Student Affiliate, please provide details confirming enrollment in a recognized degree program and remit payment (currently $10.00 per year) to the MALA office.
