2021-2023 Strategic Plan

It’s been more than 25 years since AIA Chicago last underwent a strategic planning process. From May 2020 through December 2021, many of you have participated in the development of this plan by participating in online surveys, focus groups, and 1:1 conversations. From this rigorous process - led by the experts at Executive Service Corps (ESC), a leading non-profit consultancy - we identified members’ priorities. We are also from you about the ways that AIA Chicago can better serve you at all points in your professional career path.

Below, you’ll find the overview of the strategy that includes a new Mission and Vision statement for the organization. We encourage you to dig deeper and read the entire Strategic Planning document.

With nearly 4,000 members strong and the unmatched architectural legacy of the city around us, our chapter is poised to enter our 153rd year with an exciting new road map. 

Many thanks to you - our members - for your collaborative work and vision in this new strategic plan. As we begin implementation, we look forward to sharing milestones and updates with you as we strengthen the organization and better serve you as members.
