Nomination and Election of 2024-2026 At-large Representatives to AIA Strategic Council

The AIA Strategic Council (“Council”) invites nominations of individuals for the position of At-large Representative.
Each year, the Council elects At-large Representatives to the Council, who will serve three (3)-year terms.

These At-large Representative positions bring diverse viewpoints to the Council that might not be otherwise represented. This includes individuals from allied professions, futurists, educators, and others who would not typically be elected to the Council through the state component nomination and election process.

The Strategic Council seeks nominees who align with AIA’s core values and can focus and lead the Council in its task of informing the Board and other AIA committees, task forces, etc., of the challenges and opportunities facing the profession.

In particular, the Council is seeking nominees with a strong understanding of Equity, Climate Change, Business, Design, and Strategic Planning. To be the most effective Council possible, AIA fully embraces this opportunity to bring other viewpoints, experiences, and talents, especially those that have historically been underrepresented in the profession.
