She chaired the AIA Gold Medal Advisory committee in 2011, served on the Executive Vice President CEO Search Committee in 2010, and was the president of the AIA New York chapter in 2005.
“The AIA must strengthen its role in preparing architects, especially emerging professionals, to serve as leaders in a wider range of roles,” Chin said. “I am deeply committed to this important goal by encouraging leadership and increasing our shared knowledge through improved communication. When AIA members work collaboratively, we solve complex problems, transform public policies, and inspire new approaches to improving the public realm and meeting the aspirations of our citizens.”
