Committees in Action

AIA Mid-Missouri has four main action committees.  Each of them has a main link on the menu above.  The committees are:

Membership:  This committee coordinates leadership succession planning; manages the bi-annual design awards process and reception; publicizes election information and organizes revisions to by-laws or Mission/Goals as required; with the Secretary, it maintains accurate membership records and provides regular membership service updates; and monitors on-going active committee participation.

Community:  This committee fosters AIA Mid-Missouri connections to local communities through public alliances with other professions, industries, and businesses; develops civic opportunities that enhance perceptions of AIA's value to our communities and their residents; coordinates continual freshening of chapter webpage; and identifies opportunities for AIA Mid-Missouri to give back to the community through an organized, long-term volunteer relationship.

Knowledge:  This committee identifies and promotes a large selection of annual continuing education classes; manages the AIA Mid-Missouri scholarship program; and fosters strong ties with Mid-Missouri schools, colleges, and universities to promote awareness of the profession.

Committee on the Environment (COTE):  The national AIA Committee on the Environment's definition of sustainability and sustainable design is:  Sustainability envisions the enduring prosperity of all living things.  Sustainable design seeks to create communities, buildings, and products that contribute to this vision.  COTE works to advance, disseminate, and advocate - to the profession, the building industry, the academy, and the public - design practices that integrate built and natural systems and enhance both the design quality and environmental performance of the built environment.

AIA Mid-Missouri's COTE Committee works at the local level to implement the goals of COTE.  This committee is open to anyone, architects and others, interested in sustainability and sustainable design.


If you are interested in working with any of these committees, please contact the committee chair.  They will be happy to hear from you!
