Event Details

The national AIA College of Fellows is composed of members of the Institute who are elected to Fellowship by a jury of their peers. Fellowship is one of the highest honors the AIA bestows upon a member (only the Gold Medal is higher). Advancement to Fellowship recognizes the significant achievement of individuals in design, preservation, education, literature, and service. Architects who have made significant contributions to architecture and society on a national level are awarded this distinction.

Architects who have been AIA members for 10 or more years are eligible for consideration. The process of achieving Fellowship is a rewarding self-reflection and promotes reconnection with those who have shared a meaningful part of your career. The attainment of Fellowship communicates to your peers and the public that you have made significant contributions to our society as a member of the profession.

This "Demystifying Fellowship" event will answer general questions about the Fellows nomination and application process, including assessing whether one is prepared, identifying the proper category, and reviewing the application timeline. We’ll also cover details about what is expected for securing your chapter’s nomination and offer an opportunity to ask questions to the members of the 2021 AIANY Fellows Committee.
