June 28, 2011
I am pleased to share with you this chart listing the AIA national committees, task groups, etc., that we’re currently aware of as well as some that are being considered for 2012. Also please find a list of all members noted in NetForum as being appointed or assigned to an AIA national committee, as of June 20, 2011. (If the links aren’t working, these are documents posted to the For leaders page on www.aia.org, in the section titled “AIA National Board of Directors.”)
If you’d like to nominate a member to serve on any of these committees, please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please attach a brief (one or two pages) resume for the individual, and the member’s head shot (B&W or color, low resolution is fine) so that when his/her qualifications are being reviewed by 2012 President-elect Jeffery Potter, FAIA, he can make an informed decision.
If you have a member who is interested in serving on a committee but is not sure where his/her talents can best be utilized, please do send us that member’s name and resume so that if an opening comes up, he/she can be placed without delay.
Also – when making appointments such as these, we look for diversity not only in terms of geography but also ethnicity, gender and age – so consider engaging those members who might not otherwise get noticed… the emerging professionals, for example.
The deadline for making nominations is 5:00 p.m. (Eastern) Friday, September 30, 2011. Following that deadline, staff will be reviewing the nominations received, and if necessary, soliciting nominations for any positions not filled. On October 20, 2011, 2012 President-elect Jeffery Potter, FAIA, will review all nominations and make appointments for the upcoming year. Shortly thereafter, the successful nominees will be notified of their appointment, and those not selected will also be advised accordingly.
(Please also note that there are a number of appointments made mid-year, such as for juries, so if your nominee is not appointed in November, he/she will be considered for appointment later in the year.)
If you have any questions about the committees listed, or the process, please don’t hesitate to call or email me (or the staff person listed as the committee contact on the chart). Thanks for your assistance and cooperation in opening up the committee process to engage more of our members!
(Note: This message is being sent to the Presidents’ listserv, the CACE listserv, and the Board of Directors. Please feel free to forward the information on to anyone you feel might be interested in making a nomination.)
