CASNR grad Christopher Hoffman named President-Elect of CLARB Board
A graduate of Texas Tech University's Department of Landscape Architecture has been named president-elect of the Council of Landscape Architectural Registration Board (CLARB) of Directors, officials of the Reston, Va.-based organization reported today (Oct. 5).
Christopher Hoffman received a bachelor of landscape architecture from Tech in 1988. He is the founder of Christopher B. Hoffman Landscape Architect, a Clinton, Miss.-based firm that provides site and master planning, grading and drainage and construction detailing services with a focus on mixed used developments, commercial, health care, industrial, subdivision and educational projects.
Hoffman has held leadership positions with CLARB since 2007. As an officer of the CLARB Board of Directors, he has served as vice president and secretary. In addition, he served as region III director and alternate region III director. He served a two-year term on the group's communications committee, which was responsible for helping to redefine the association's communication strategy, including a new website and database.
Hoffman was appointed by Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant to a five-year term on the Mississippi Landscape Architectural Advisory Committee of the Mississippi State Board of Architecture. Hoffman is an active member of the Mississippi Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects, serving as the president and as chapter advocacy chair for the past eight years.
He's been part of 14 award-winning projects, including the 90-acre corporate campus for Southern Pine Electrical Power Association; Clinton Natchez Trace Visitor Center; Clinton Public School District Elementary Schools; Elvis Presley Birthplace Renovations and the Siberian tiger exhibit at the Jackson Zoo.
Program officials note that since 1970, the CLARB group has been dedicated to ensuring that all individuals who affect the natural and built environment through the practice of landscape architecture are sufficiently qualified. Members include the licensure boards that regulate the landscape architecture profession in the United States; Puerto Rico; and Canadian provinces of British Columbia and Ontario.
