The AIA is positioning for robust future growth and relevance through stronger alignment, collaboration and partnerships among state and local components; elimination of redundancy, and streamlined effective governance. To aid in this positioning, the AIA Member Service Alignment Pilot Program was created to fund programs to promote component alignment.

The Virginia Society AIA, in cooperation with your local components in Virginia, applied for a membership alignment grant in February.  We are proud to say that we were awarded the grant and are looking forward to our first facilitated statewide discussion with state and local component leaders.

Your leaders will be gathering at Institute headquarters in D.C. on June 8–9, 2015 for a facilitated discussion focused on resolving conflicts, analyzing member services across the state, and identifying opportunities to work collaboratively in service and support of our membership.

The common bond we have is the members we serve, the desire to communicate the value of architects to the community, and the need to provide services that elevate the profession of architecture.

We look forward to keeping you updated on our progress. Contact Shanelle Calvin, Membership Manager, for more information.
