Call for Nominations Fellowship Class of 2024

To all AIA Dallas Fellows and Chapter Members,

The AIA Dallas Chapter Fellows Network is now accepting recommendations for local nominees for Fellowship. Recommendations must be submitted with the support of a Chapter Fellow.

AIA Dallas’ Fellowship Network is comprised of all AIA Dallas and Northeast Texas Fellows. Fellows contribute their time and participate in identifying and evaluating candidates for chapter fellowship nomination and support them as sponsors and mentors. Fellows’ involvement is invaluable for our candidates and has contributed to our chapter’s success.

Chapter members interested in information about pursuing fellowship should reach out to an AIA Dallas Fellow, to the 2023 Fellowship Network co-chairs, Jay Macaulay, FAIA and/or Ron Wommack, FAIA, or to AIA Dallas’ Executive Director, Zaida Basora, FAIA.  General information and FAQs about AIA Fellowship can be found at aia.org/fellowship.

Call for Class of 2024 College of Fellows Nominations

Fellowship is one of the highest national honors the AIA can bestow upon a member. Fellowship decisions are made at the national level by a jury of fellows and the jury is looking  for architects who have made a significant contribution to architecture and society and who have achieved a standard of excellence in the profession at a local, regional, and national level. AIA Dallas nominates and supports local members who are submitting for the College of Fellows. To nominate an individual for elevation to Fellowship please follow the Fellowship Network’s Nomination Requirements.
