Lambda Alpha International, the Honorary Society
for the Advancement of Land Economics, was founded in 1930 under the
leadership of the renowned land economist and champion of academic
freedom, Richard T. Ely. As an honorary society, it provides a forum for
the study and advancement of land economics where the “winnowing and
sifting” of ideas takes place in an atmosphere of mutual respect.

Individuals who have made notable contributions to the study and
ethical practice of land use are invited to join Lambda Alpha
International. Now numbering more than 2,000 members worldwide, Lambda
Alpha International is an apolitical not-for-profit professional
organization.

Organizational Goals
The Society’s original goal of “fostering a closer association with
academia and professionals involved with land economics and related
fields”, while still valid today, has expanded. The Society is now a
catalyst for the advancement of land economics by facilitating the
interaction of members who have distinguished themselves in their
professions, their communities and through academic achievements. Lambda
Alpha International provides an opportunity for distinguished
practitioners and scholars to come together in fellowship to discuss,
debate and perhaps solve dilemmas involving use of our land resources.
