The Editorial Advisory Panel (EAP) is looking for creative volunteers with an interest in publishing to help influence the LI’s online and print content
How do we best encapsulate the breadth and value of landscape practice? What can we do to bridge the gap between academia and practice? How might the LI broaden and diversify while remaining true to our existing members and core values?
As a member of the Landscape Institute Editorial Advisory Panel (EAP), you will offer advice and guidance to the LI during a period of exciting transition for our print and digital communications. You will assist the editor of Landscape – the journal of the Landscape Institute – and the LI staff team in planning and curating content that showcases the very best and latest in landscape practice and thinking. You will help influence and deliver on the LI’s strategic objectives, ensuring its key messages reach a growing and diversifying audience. Strongly connected, with a network of contacts within the industry and beyond, you will be the link between the heart and the voice of the profession.
Landscape is published quarterly and is available to members in print and online. It is complemented by a range of digital communications, including web and social media. As the LI increases its digital output, we are seeking new members of the EAP to help not only shape the messages across these channels, but ensure that they are co-ordinated and unified. And, as we seek to widen our membership, we are keen to ensure that all of our communications respond to a growing set of interests and needs.
We are particularly keen to recruit members in the following categories:
- landscape practitioners – architects, managers, scientists, and urban designers – employed in both the private and public sector
- student members
- licentiates members
If you have lots of ideas and opinions and a keen interest in publishing and online communications, you are an ideal candidate for this panel. This post will give you the opportunity to shape the LI’s communications over the next two to four years and, in the process, expand your knowledge and network. The panel is a friendly, welcoming group, and the conversations are always open and stimulating.
The EAP meets four times per year, in line with the Landscape editorial calendar, and corresponds digitally in between meetings.
Interested in joining the EAP? Please send your current CV and a supporting statement of up to 500 words to Amina Waters, Interim Executive Director of Marketing and Communications: firstname.lastname@example.org.
