Strategic Council

Formed in 2015, the Strategic Council advances the architecture profession by informing the Board and other Institute bodies about important professional issues, opportunities, and threats. Although it is not an AIA governing body, the Council’s work is vital to AIA’s ability to serve the profession.

The Council approaches its tasks with an emphasis on an outward and forward-focused vision. In this spirit, the Council focuses on long-term goals and outcomes of AIA’s work rather than the administrative or programmatic efforts that achieve those goals.

Thought leadership to date

To ensure continued relevance of the Institute’s work, the Council meets in assembly to deliberate and forms small groups to explore topics based on the Institute's strategic objectives. From that work, it develops recommendations for the Board's consideration. Section 6.5 of the Institute Bylaws defines in detail the Council’s mission, responsibilities, and composition.
