Be a Delegate at AIA Convention

If you're an architect or associate member of AIA East Bay going to San Antonio for the AIA Convention, think about being an official delegate for the chapter.

What is a Convention Delegate?
In San Antonio, AIA members will elect future leaders and debate and decide a wide range of important issues. Only accredited delegates may participate in voting. AIAEastBay encourages any chapter member interested in participating in AIA Business Sessions to be a delegate.

It was at the 2006 Convention in Los Angeles that the membership approved, almost unanimously to pass the AIA East Bay Resolution regarding the sizing of the Electronic Documents for Small Firms and Sole Proprietors.

What Do I Need to Do to Be a Delegate?
Most chapter delegates attend the California Caucus Breakfast on Thursday, May 3 to learn about important issues, behind-the-scenes information from California Regional Directors, and provide feedback to the Regional Directors. It is at this breakfast that you will receive your Delegate Card. After you have your card, you will go to the convention floor to be accredited and vote for the elected leadership. Resolutions are presented, debated and voted for on Saturday, May 5.

I Can't Attend the California Breakfast.
If you can't attend the breakfast but want to be a delegate call Sidney at 510/464-3600 asap.
