Each year, the AIA Strategic Council has the opportunity to elect as many as five At-large Representatives to the Council, to serve two-year terms.
For the 2019-2020 term, the Council is seeking, in particular, interest from individuals who embody points of view not already represented on the Council; for example, representatives from related professions, the public, governmental bodies, etc. See pages 9-10 of the Strategic Council Guidebook for more information on this position.
To encourage a wide range of nominees, components such as AIA New Jersey are invited to seek candidates.
Nomination packets must include:

3. Letter of support from at least one 2018 Council member, such as our own Regional Representative, Bruce D. Turner, AIA
4. Supporting materials as desired

Deadline for submission to AIA National: 5:00 pm ET, June 28, 2018. Send all materials as one compiled PDF, in one
