Kathleen R. Nosbisch Executive Director of the Virginia Board for Architects, Professional Engineers, Land Surveyors, Certified Interior Designers, and Landscape Architects (APELSCIDLA), will be recognized with Honorary Membership in AIA Virginia at the Visions for Architecture gala on Friday, Nov. 3, 2017, at the Hotel John Marshall. Honorary Membership is bestowed upon a person of esteemed character who is not eligible for membership in the AIA Virginia but who has rendered distinguished and exemplary service, over a sustained period of time, to architecture and the built environment in Virginia.
For nearly a decade, Nosbisch has been committed to ensuring the health, safety, and welfare of the people of the Commonwealth. An endorser notes that she “has a clear understanding of the needs of the professions she helps regulate and the ability of the state and her office to work effectively with the diverse elements of each professional community. As a dedicated patron of architecture across Virginia, Kate listens, thinks and delivers.”
Nosbisch’s vast knowledge of the statutes and regulations allow her to seamlessly and successfully work with architect board members as they strive to carry out their appointed duties. She understands the role and importance of regulation in the lives of Virginia’s citizens and has consistently tried to educate those impacted by regulations of their responsibilities in their roles. She informs the public through seminars and advises the profession at many outreach opportunities, at each AIA Virginia local component, and at each of the accredited programs of architecture at Virginia’s universities, it’s no surprise that she is nationally admired by her peers.
In recognition of her thoughtful and dedicated leadership in service to architects, AIA Virginia welcomes Kate Nosbisch as an Honorary Member.
