A graduate of Texas Tech University's Department of Landscape Architecture has transitioned to past president and chair of the committee on nominations for the Council of Landscape Architectural Registration Boards after concluding his one-year term as president of the organization. Christopher Hoffman ('88 BLA) will serve in these roles through next Fall.

In addition, Hoffman served as an ambassador and liaison to national and international landscape architecture organizations and allied professions.
As past president, Hoffman will chair the CLARB Committee on Nominations, which is responsible for identifying and vetting candidates for CLARB leadership to ensure the organization has the most effective, qualified individuals to lead the group toward organizational goals.
