Citizen Architect

Promote AIA Members' Involvement

Thomas Jefferson once counseled “…honesty, knowledge and industry are the qualities which will lead you to the highest employment of your country and to its highest esteem.”

In an effort to reposition architects and those who practice architecture, AIA Florida is actively seeking to identify and recognize those members who in their daily lives are playing an important part in shaping the world through their leadership. In shaping the way our communities will deal with life in the 21st century our leadership as architects, thinkers and does will be required more than ever.

AIA Florida recognizes those who have contributed to their communities through service on not-for-profit boards, governmental office or boards, design charrettes or any other effort that demonstrates the leadership of the architect as a citizen in the community.

Applications for the 2017 class are now available. Click HERE for an application. Please emphasize your service outside of work on your application. Applications are due November 17, 2017. The 2017 class will be recognized on January 17, 2018 at Legislative Day in Tallahassee.
