  • Introduction Janet Pike, Hon. AIA, Executive Vice President, AIA Kentucky Alvin J. Cox, AIA, 2010 President of AIA Kentucky
  • Of your career. Soon you’ll be enrolling in the intern development program, taking the A.R.E. and looking for a job. Your architectural education prepares you for a wide variety of careers – practicing architect is just one.
  • The AIA celebrated is 150 th anniversary in 2007, and the first chapter in Kentucky was 100 years old in 2008. We have a long history here in Kentucky!
  • AIA is the association that represents architects and architecural interns. AIA is 83,000 strong nationwide, with 575 members in Kentucky.
  • You may recognized AIA purely from the letters that appear after the names of architects you know. AIA is the designation for a licensed architect Associate AIA is the designation for those between school and license – architectural interns; they include architectural graduates and those working under the direct supervision of a licensed architect We also have Allied Members. These are generally allied professionals – engineers, contractors, interior designers, lawyers - or vendors of products that are used or specified by architects
  • AIA’s strategic initiatives are centered in the areas of Knowledge, Advocacy and Community. The core values underlying these initiatives are rooted in the AIA Code of Ethics, Professional Development includes conferences, tradeshows, educational seminars & workshops, and building tours.
  • One of our primary objectives is to help architects meet these continuing education requirements.
  • AIA has established a terrific quality control program to ensure that state and local chapters, product vendors, related organizations and others provide high quality educational programs to architects. Our program also provides an educational transcript as a free service to AIA members.
  • Professional Development includes conferences, tradeshows, seminars, workshops, tours. AIA Kentucky hosts an annual conference and tradeshow – this year’s is in October at Belterra Casino Resort & Spa in Florence, Indiana. We also host seminars and workshops throughout the year that help our Members meet continuing education requirements. Our Local Chapters also provide continuing education opportunities at lunch & learn sessions and other events. The National AIA Component provides a many learning opportunities both in person and via video, web, and audio podcasts.
  • Tradeshows are where you will be exposed to new products and new applications for existing products. As architects, you will be responsible for specifying all the thousands of products that make up the building – roofing, flooring, exterior skin, door hardware, windows and doors, paint and wallpaper, and many, many more. A tradeshow allows you to compare products and discuss your needs with vendors.
  • Architects never outgrow their love for building tours! There are opportunities throughout the year to visit new projects and learn from the project architects, contractors and consultants about their design challenges and solutions.
  • Architecture is a highly regulated profession. It is regulated at the federal, state, county, and local level. AIA is the profession’s watch dog and advocate in these matters. At AIA Kentucky, we have engaged the services of a registered lobbyist to educate legislators and regulatory agencies on how pending bills or regulations will affect the profession.
  • At the State House we are actively engaged in legislation that affects the profession – energy conservation and natural resources, taxes, licensing issues, contracting issues, historic preservation, codes and standards, etc. AIA Kentucky members fill designated seats on various state oversight committees, including the Architects Selection Committee in the Division of Finance, the Board of Housing Buildings and Construction, the State Plumbing Code Committee, and the High Performance Building Advisory Group.
  • AIA Kentucky has an active Legislative Committee to help develop policies and review pending legislation, and we have a Political Action Committee that raises funds to support candidates who support our issues. Just two weeks ago several of our members visited Capitol Hill in Washington, where they met with Senator Mitch McConnell and Congressmen Chandler, Guthrie, Yarmuth and Rogers.
  • The architects provided the Senator and Congressmen the AIA’s “Blueprint for Economic Recovery 2010” Poster – an attention-getting tool to highlight the AIA’s legislative agenda.
  • Communications is a key benefit of AIA membership.
  • Here are a couple of examples of our most recent membership directory. I have a few copies of both editions and there should be a copies in the COD library.
  • AIA Design Awards at the national and state level are a great way to celebrate excellence in architecture. These awards are highly competitive with a national jury selecting the winners. These awards provide a great way to provide public outreach and showcase good design. Our service awards recognize those who provide outstanding service to the profession or who exemplify the AIA’s ideals in their communities.
  • Each year we publish the award winners in a special insert in Louisville’s weekly business newspaper. The awards are presented to the winners at a banquet during the annual convention in the fall.
  • AIA Kentucky strives to foster the capacity of the profession to Serve the Public. We do this in many ways: Our website provides an “architect finder” where potential clients can see a list of firms with links to their web sites, or utilize AIA national’s searchable database of firms. Both are an excellent way for job seekers to get information on firms. We have information on our web site on how to select and work with an architect, and we offer some nice print publications as well. AIA Contract Documents are consensus-based design and construction contracts that are developed by AIA. These documents are available to all in the construction industry in paper and electronic formats.
  • AIA Kentucky has established a Disaster Assessment Program and provided training to our members so they can provide building damage inspection after disasters. In the past we’ve responded to tornados and floods in several regions in Kentucky.
  • Architecture is a team sport! AIA must maintain close relationships with all the players. We meet regularly with our design and construction partners – general contractors, engineers, owner groups. Our business partners include chambers of commerce and owner groups and we participate in the Kentucky Small Business Coalition. On the regulatory scene, we maintain contact with the State agencies that regulate architecture.
  • Get active in AIA and help yourself to the many benefits.
  • AIA at all levels – it is a great place to network, have fun and get connected!
  • You can see here the other pages you can get to that have information that can help you get through IDP and help you take the ARE. “Get Licensed” “Mentorship” “IDP”. I will touch on “Member Groups and Communities” in a little bit when we talk about getting connected.
  • In these pages you will also find this online tool. “ One-stop-shop” for IDP Completion. Worked with NCARB to create this tool to help you manage your IDP experience.
  • How do you get connected to all these things? The answer is to JOIN!
  • Your dues in the year you graduate and your first full year after are free! If you get free dues from June 2010 through 2011, why wouldn’t you join?
  • No matter where you go after graduation, the AIA is there!
  • AIA Membership has three parts: Local state and national. MAKE THE MOST OF ALL OF THEM! For those of you who stay in Kentucky, you’ll belong to the state organization and one local chapter, depending on where you live and work.
  • No matter what your areas of interest are, the AIA has resources and activities to help you on your path to licensure and throughout your lifetime of architectural practice.
  • Get Involved & Get Connected to take advantage of the benefits.
  • AIA can do for us what we cannot do for ourselves individually. AIA speaks for the profession as a whole. We can address concerns and problems that a single architect or architectural firm cannot. AIA is governed by architects and led by architects. Our members set the agenda and AIA component staff like me are directed to carry it out. All members have a voice in AIA – but you must be engaged. If not, we are the poorer for it and you miss the opportunities to make your profession better and help us set the goals.
