Call for Delegates 2022

Shape future of AIA’s National Leadership by Becoming a Delegate

AIA Chicago requests your participation as a 2022 delegate in the upcoming AIA Annual Meeting.

As one of the largest chapters in the nation, AIA Chicago is permitted to have 179 delegates representing the chapter at the national level. Becoming a delegate is an exciting way to shape the ideas and issues that matter most to our profession. Volunteer delegates vote on behalf of our local members on issues including:

  • Candidates for national officers on the AIA Board of Directors

AIA, FAIA, Emeritus, and Associate AIA members of AIA Chicago in good standing are eligible to serve as delegates.
