The Nominating Committee is an elected body that submits the elective slate to the Board of Directors and the membership for vote at the Annual Meeting held each June.

The AIA New York Chapter 2015 Nominating Committee accepts recommendations and self-referrals for Chapter service through its Board and elective committees for terms starting in 2016.

Service with the Chapter helps to shape the programming, initiatives, and message of the AIA New York Chapter. The Board meets monthly, with supplemental meetings and event commitments dependent on the position to which an individual is elected. 

Elective committees usually meet monthly throughout the year, though the Fellows and Honors Committees have intensive meetings leading up to the Annual Meeting. Each candidate should consider their schedule and availability carefully when applying.

Recommendations should include:
1. Cover letter indicating areas of interest for service
2. Brief one-page resume
3. Complete contact information: name, address, email, telephone

Materials can be sent by postal or email. Postal submissions should be addressed to:
