The AIA Fellowship program was developed to elevate those architects who have made a significant contribution to architecture and society and who have achieved a standard of excellence in the profession. Election to Fellowship not only recognizes the achievements of the architect as an individual, but also honors before the public and the profession a model architect who has made a significant contribution to architecture and society on a national level.
The deadline for the 2013 program has passed.
The 2014 information will be posted in the summer of 2013. Until that time we encourage you to use the “2013 Fellowship Walk Through” as a guideline.
Architect members who have been in good standing for at least 10 years may be nominated for Fellowship. Architect members may be advanced to Fellowship under guidelines set by the Board if they have contributed notably to the advancement of the profession of architecture.
The nominee must have completed 10 cumulative years as an AIA architect member prior to the nomination deadline (i.e., 10 years prior to October 18, 2013).
FAIA Selection Resources for Components
There are two new reports to assist components with the FAIA selection process. The “AIA Member Roster with License Info” is a report found in Net Forum, Report Central that provides you with a list of your members including their age, join date, and licensure date.
The “Membership History Archive Report”, found in the document library (Membership History Archive) or the Membership Resources Share Point site will provide additional information. The archives reports are a series of excel spreadsheets of members who had an active membership as an AIA or Assoc. AIA member in any year from the mid-1980s to 2007. It includes some, but not all, of members who lapsed prior to 1987. The “FAIA eligibility” field has been removed on member’s records in Net Forum due to its inaccuracy. Please contact Greg Franklin if you have any questions.
FAIA Roundtable Q&A Webinar Session
The Honors and Awards staff will host a final Q&A session to help “demystify” the Fellowship submission process. This session is scheduled for October 4 and will begin at 1:00 pm, Eastern Time. Call in information will be provided closer to the time of the session. While specific questions about individual submissions cannot be addressed, a general understanding of the jury and submission process, what the jury looks for, resources available, and much more are open for discussion.
