Leadership Opportunities

Each year, AIA Seattle welcomes new leaders to represent a broad range of architects and related professionals with a passionate interest in our five priority areas: Design, Sustainability, Advocacy, Engagement, and Member Service.



Potential Board Members are identified in the first quarter of each year, and contacted in advance of member voting in June. The nominees for leadership are a qualified and talented pool of potential Board Members, and the Member Advancement Committee reviews and vets all nominations to promote inclusion and belonging. We strongly encourage the nomination of women and nonbinary people, people of color, people with disabilities, and veterans. For more information, see the Board Member Role Description.

If you or someone you know would make a great board member, please fill out this form. Nominations are received all year, and approximately once a month, the Member Advancement Steering Committee reviews nominations received through the form and reaches back to follow up.

All nominees will be asked to disclose any violations of the AIA Code of Ethics in the last seven years. Please review the AIA Code of Ethics here.
