Fellowship is the highest honor accorded AIA Architect members. Candidates must hold ten years membership or more and demonstrate excellence and influence in one of five categories. The Fellows Committee identifies, invites, and nominates qualified members for elevation to Fellowship. The committee also assists nominees in finding mentors and preparing submittal portfolios.

The committee meets a minimum of five times to discuss potential candidates, determine nominees to put forward from AIA Los Angeles, mentor candidates through the submission process and ensure that submittals are completed by the deadline.

Once AIA National announces the annual slate of Fellows, the Fellows Committee host a reception for newly elevated Chapter members. More information may be obtained from the co-chairs.
