The AIA Virginia PAC Award looks to celebrate the engagement and commitment of a local AIA component that 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 members. 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 the total amount of money invested by the members of the local component.
Below outlines point allocations:
- Local component Board participation
a. Did 100% of the Board of Directors invest into the AIA Virginia PAC?
i. Yes = 20 points
ii. No = 0 points
- Percentage of local component’s members who have invested in the AIA Virginia PAC
i. Component with highest % = 40 points
ii. Component with second highest % = 20 points
iii. Component with third highest % = 10 points
- Average investment per member from the total local component membership
i. Component with highest average investment/member = 40 points
ii. Component with second highest average investment/member = 30 points
iii. Component with third highest average investment/member = 20 points
iv. Component with fourth highest average investment/member = 10 points
v. Component with fifth highest average investment/member = 0 points
