Governance Weekend 2022 is just a few weeks away, and that means we’re rapidly approaching the elections cycle for the 2023-2024 AIAS National Board of Directors!

The American Institute of Architecture Students holds elections each year to choose the incoming National Board of Directors who will lead and represent our students and organization into the next school year! The National Board is comprised of a total of fourteen positions which include President; Vice President; four regional Quad Directors; two International Regional Directors; ACSA, AIA, NCARB, and NOMA Liaisons(appointed by their respective organizations); the Past President; and the Executive Director (who is an ex officio member of the Board). In the 2022 Elections Cycle, student members are eligible to submit candidacy for the President, Vice President, and Quad Director positions.

Members on the National Board help steer the course of the organization and connect with chapter leaders and students throughout the AIAS network. It is a great opportunity to further develop leadership abilities, build a solid national and international network with fellow students and professionals, and be a part of directing the AIAS toward a bright future just as student leaders have done for the past 66 years! These positions are crucial to the success of the AIAS, and we rely on your input and vote to select the most qualified candidates. During Governance Weekend, members and delegates of the Council of Presidents will have several opportunities to hear from each candidate and ask questions about their vision for the organization.

Your Chapter’s Delegate is, by default, the Chapter President. Chapter Presidents can appoint another member of their Chapter as the delegate by contacting the AIAS Vice President at If no member of your Chapter is able to attend, your Chapter President can appoint a proxy Chapter to cast their Chapter’s vote, provided you are a Chapter In Good Standing.

Should you have any questions regarding the elections process, please reach out to the Elections Chair, Past President Scott Cornelius at
