AIA Utah Committees
Anyone can participate! Learn how!
We rely on our volunteers - Architect, Associate, Emeritus, Fellows and Allied Members - to help shape the role that good design plays in creating better spaces for live, work, and play. With over 650 members, AIA Utah promotes positive change through the power of design.
AIA Utah Committees all have two co-chairs. One chair is a member of the Board of Directors. Committee Responsibilities for each board member can be found here.
