Registered Membership for Established Members G10+

This process has been created for those who have not entered the registration membership process at earlier points but have worked extensively in the profession and now wish to become a Registered Landscape Architect.

The difference between this process and the graduate member process is the increased level of experience required. Due to the increased requirement for experience, the need for mentorship has been met. Applicants applying via this process will still be assessed against the same core competencies as the graduate member process but are expected to have a greater depth of knowledge in their practice areas.

Applicants need to be able to fulfil the following criteria:

  • Be endorsed by two NZILA Registered Landscape Architects one of whom must sponsor their application;
  • Have worked for a minimum of 450 weeks (at least 90 weeks in NZ); and
  • Be a current G10+ NZILA member.

If you are attending the Registration Interview in 2024 please advise to register your interest.  An application form will need to be completed by September (date TBC)

The interviews will be held in November 2024 with the dates yet to be confirmed.

You will require:

  • the endorsement of two NZILA Registered Landscape Architects (500 word citation from Sponsor);
  • summary of professional experience - a CV or 3-page resume;
  • Portfolio summarising practice experience (including NZ experience) - 30MB maximum file size;
  • Evidence of 15 points of CPD covering a period of 45 weeks prior to application;

An invoice for the Application fee of $499 + gst will be issued on receipt of the application.

Applicants will need to attend and pass the Institute’s examination to become a Registered Member. Interviews for candidates applying under the Established Member process will be focused on NZILA and New Zealand core practice areas. Candidates are expected to demonstrate a highly developed understanding of their responsibilities to the profession, the Institute, the community and the environment.
