New Bylaws Clarification

During the June 16, 2017, virtual membership meeting, the membership approved the new AIA Virginia Bylaws.

It was recently brought to our attention that there needs to be a clarification to an item in these updated bylaws. This clarification is regarding Section 5.03 Qualification of Directors, subsection (a) that speaks to “Component Directors”. In the former bylaws, these individuals were called “Elected Directors”.

During the review of the bylaws, it was the committee’s intent to have the Component Director be a more inclusive position to include emeritus and associate members. As a result, the requirement for this position should be a member in good standing instead of architect member who is a member in good standing.

This change will be presented as a ‘mea culpa’ clarification and voted on at the AIA Virginia Annual Meeting at Architecture Exchange East Nov. 2, 2017.
