Interested AIA members are encouraged to sign up for volunteer opportunities at the AIA Convention 2015 in Atlanta, May 14-16. Members who commit to at least four (4) time slots will receive full complementary registration to the Convention.
The AIA Board of Directors Class of 2013 chose as its name The Original 13 based on Richard Upjohn and the 13 Architects who founded the AIA in 1857. They took their class name from the tradition of the past but are looking to the future.
They want to meet Emerging Leaders at the AIA Convention this June in Denver, and are offering five fellowships in the amount of $1,000 each to attend the Convention, expand career horizons and look to the future.
HOW IT WORKS
Send a Tweet of Interest to share what you hope to learn by attending the Convention as an Emerging Leader. The Class will review your Tweets and select ten finalists. These finalists will write a more detailed narrative of their aspirations. Five Fellowship Recipients will be selected from this group on the basis of their narratives.
Each Fellowship Recipient will be paired with two Class of 2013 Board Directors during the Convention and will receive a $1,000 stipend to offset expenses. They’ll help each Fellowship Recipient realize his/her aspirations at Convention; get to know them personally with the hope of forming enduring relationships. After Convention they’ll ask for a report on the experience to share with other Emerging Leaders.
