The AIA California Council is seeking individuals who are civically involved by professional capacity, and influence and shape community design policies and public policies that benefit their communities.

The goals of the Citizen Architect program are to make significant efforts to identify opportunities for the Citizen Architect to get involved in their community, acquire leadership positions locally and statewide, announce vacant opportunities, finding or creating networking and collaboration opportunities that will insert our citizen architects to the forefront, and a forum to learn about each other and assist them in carrying out their public duties.

Below is a short list, but is not limited to, the types of Citizen Architects who would be invited to participate in the network:

• Local elected (Mayor, City Council, school board etc)
• Appointed officials
• State legislators
• Architectural design review board members
• Historic preservation commissioners
• Planning commissioners
• Other local governments and appointed boards/commissions
• Architect leaders in public roles that affect the built environment and architectural community, who are civically engrained and will benefit from a network that will empower, elevate, or progress their potential on shaping their communities or intend to run for political office.

Please email Melissa Barton, Government Affairs Program Coordinator at with complete candidate contact details. If you have previously responded to this call via Relevance or social media, please disregard.
