Kick off the new year with WIA! Our January committee meeting will be Wednesday, Jan 15th.

WHEN:  Wednesday, January 15th | 6:30 – 8:30pm
WHERE: Center for Architecture, 536 LaGuardia Place; Room 532
TOPIC:  AIA Repositioning

The overarching goal of Repositioning is to determine how the Institute should reposition architecture, architects, and how to reflect current client and public perceptions. This is a long-term and deep examination of what it means to serve our members and why architecture matters. Through our Community Conversations, Virtual Town Halls, and special sessions at Grassroots, National Convention, and the Council of Architectural Component Executives (CACE), the AIA has focused the examination on four main areas:

CONNECT [Component autonomy versus unity | Component structure |  Tier coordination ]
ENGAGE [ Efficacy of communications | Engaging emerging professionals ]
LEAD [ Leadership tenure and agendas | Board size and composition ]
INNOVATE [ Prioritization of initiatives | Taking a stand on important issues | Resource allocation ]
