Nominate a Colleague for Local & National Honors

AIA Seattle strives for diversity in leadership. Your nominations are critical to our chapter's ability to recognize and encourage design leadership across the breadth of our profession.

Consider nominating one or more of your peers for a local award, the College of Fellows, or for the AIA Seattle Board of Directors. AIA Seattle enthusiastically welcomes nominations for these awards and honors through Monday, March 11, 2019.

Individual Awards & Honors

AIA Seattle’s annual awards to individuals include the Medal of Honor, the Young Architect Award, Honorary Membership, Allied Organization Award, and a Community Service Award. Award decisions are made by the AIA Seattle Fellows & Honors Committee.

College of Fellows

Fellowship is one of the highest national honors the AIA can bestow upon a member. AIA Seattle nominates and supports local members who are submitting for the College of Fellows. Fellowship decisions are made at the national level by a jury of Fellows. To nominate an individual for an award or Fellowship, please download the Nomination Form and return to Connor Descheemaker by March 11, 2019.

Board of Directors

AIA Seattle seeks nominations for the 2019-2020 Board of Directors, with terms beginning in September 2019. We encourage representation from a broad range of architects and related professionals with a passionate interest in our five priority areas: Design, Sustainability, Advocacy, Engagement, and Member Service. We strongly encourage the nomination of women, people of color, people with disabilities, and veterans.

If you or someone you know would make a great board member, email Connor Descheemaker by March 11, 2019 with their name, contact details, a bio or resume, and a brief statement about their professional background and interests. Board nomination decisions are made by the AIA Seattle Board Nominating Committee.
