Talk About It
Congratulations to the Newly Elevated Fellow: Bernita Beikmann, FAIA
Join us in celebrating one of two AIA Dallas members who have been elevated to the College of Fellows this year.
Only three percent of AIA's 96,000 members have received this prestigious honor. The Fellowship program was developed to elevate those architects who have made a significant contribution to architecture and society, and who have achieved a standard of excellence in the profession. Election to fellowship not only recognizes the achievements of architects as individuals, but also their significant contribution to architecture and society on a national level.
