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 doers 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 are due November 1, 2019.­

The 2019 class of Citizen Architects will be recognized and receive their pins and certificates at AIA Florida’s Legislative Day on January 28, 2020, in Tallahassee. Members may apply themselves. Components are encouraged to identify members to apply. It is not necessary to be nominated by your component.
