As presented by Yael Kinsky AIA at the chapter business meeting in Düsseldorf, AIA Europe will explore implementing an honor and awards program.
The presentation and discussion included data on how other international chapters implement their programs. It was agreed that Yael would chair a committee chair to to define the program content and scope. Look for a member survey to address this potential in early 2014.
A committee of 5 will be formed and, while enthusiasm at volunteerism is sufficient, potential members should include a few paragraphs noting any experience in honor and awards programs. Those interested in serving the chapter on this project should contact Yael by e-mail.
