Build it Together – 2019 Board of Directors – Call for Interest


It is time to get to work. 
AIA West Jersey is seeking members to join our Board of Directors in 2019.

AIA West Jersey serves as your voice in state issues affecting the architectural profession. As a volunteer organization, the Officers and Trustees on the Board of Directors serve one or two year terms, ideally continuing on in other capacities and culminating as President. The continuity of the Board allows the Board members to learn from their predecessors, making the transition easier and allowing for an efficient operation of the Chapter.

Serving on the AIA West Jersey Executive Committee is a great avenue for professional development. Nowhere else in our profession will you get the opportunity to affect how architecture is practiced in New Jersey. You will also become part of the AIA New Jersey [AIANJ] representation as AIA works on a national scale for the betterment of our profession. It may seem humbling to have this opportunity; however, your voice is exactly what is needed, regardless of your professional status. Board members ideally will include a full range of member voices; principals of larger firms, project managers, single practitioners, and emerging professionals. All that is required is a desire to improve the architectural profession.

Secretary: One year term. Responsibilities: attend monthly executive board meetings and keep minutes of the proceedings, coordinate with AIA NJ for AIAWJ event publication notice, update membership roster & coordinate with AIA NJ, assist the president and president elect with newsletters & email blasts, and publish relevant AIA information on AIA West Jersey social media outlets.

EPiC Section Director [Emerging Professionals Community]: One year term. Responsibilities: attend monthly executive board meetings, serve as the conduit between AIA NJ EPiC and AIA West Jersey through a monthly teleconference and assist the executive board with developing & planning Emerging Professional events (social, networking, educational).

Trustee: One year term. Responsibilities: attend monthly executive board meetings or teleconferences and assist the executive board with developing & planning general membership meeting topics.

President-elect: One year term.

We encourage you to become involved and help shape your local AIA Component – no previous board experience is required, with the exception of the President-elect.
