Citizen Architect Program

The general public's view of architects and AIA Iowa is shaped first and foremost by how the individual AIA members interact with their clients and their communities. The AIA Iowa Public Relations Committee introduced this program in 2008 to recognize members who represent AIA's values to their communities through public service: the Citizen Architect Program. This program is a recognition program bestowed upon all members who meet qualification criteria, and is intended to encourage all AIA Iowa members to actively engage in their communities and share in the AIA mission
