The AIA 2024 Annual Meeting Information

Shape the future of The AIA's national leadership by becoming a Delegate.

As one of the largest chapters in the nation, AIA Chicago is permitted to have 189 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
  • Resolutions and amendments to the national bylaws
AIA, FAIA, Emeritus, and Associate AIA members of AIA Chicago in good standing are eligible to serve as delegates.

The total time commitment for being a delegate is less than five hours total (four hours of meetings + approximately 15 minutes to vote.)

The window to sign up to become a 2024 Delegate has now closed.
