For the second time in three years, AIA Central Virginia took home the annual AIA Virginia PAC Rumble in the Jungle award. AIA Richmond led the competition nearly the entire time but could not hold off the 2020 Champions. This year, whether or not the local chapter’s Board of Directors had 100% participation in the PAC was the game-changer. Arguably the easiest requirement to satisfy, AIA Central Virginia checked that box and stormed ahead. With over 7% of its chapter investing in the PAC – the highest percent on record to date – put the competition out of reach. In the Spring, AIA Virginia will be awarding AIA Central Virginia with $1,000 for its use for Architecture Week/Month 2021.

The AIA Virginia PAC Award looks to celebrate the engagement and commitment of a local AIA component who supports the advancement and mission of the PAC.  The Award has historically been presented at Architecture Exchange East to the local component’s Board of Directors who will accept the award on behalf of its respective membership.  The Award criteria is based on a point total calculation based on three areas: local component Board participation, percentage of local component’s membership who have invested in the PAC, and total amount of money invested by the members of the local component.

Below outlines point allocations:

  • Local component Board participation
    • Did 100% of the Board of Directors invest into the AIA Virginia PAC?
      1. Yes = 20 points
      1. No = 0 points
  • Percentage of local component’s members who have invested in the AIA Virginia PAC
    • Component with highest % = 40 points
    • Component with second highest % = 20 points
    • Component with third highest % = 10 points
  • Average investment per member from the total local component membership
    • Component with highest average investment/member = 40 points
    • Component with second highest average investment/member = 30 points
    • Component with third highest average investment/member = 20 points
    • Component with fourth highest average investment/member = 10 points
    • Component with fifth highest average investment/member = 0 points
