AIAS ANNOUNCEMENT OF EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
A NEW CHAPTER BEGINS
At the 2014 AIAS Grassroots Leadership Conference this past weekend, I had the remarkable pleasure and honor of being sworn in to the AIAS Board of Directors alongside the newly-appointed Executive Director, Nick Serfass, AIA, CAE. This exciting news was officially announced by 2013-2014 President Westin Conahan just moments before we took the Oath of Office at the National Building Museum. It would be a vast understatement to say that we are thrilled to have Nick joining us, and we look forward to the amazing things that he will accomplish for the organization in the years to come. Nick comes to the AIAS from a position with NCARB, where he worked extensively on their outreach to students and young professionals as the Assistant Director of Internship and Education, including dozens of speaking engagements at AIAS conferences and chapters. He holds a BA in Foreign Affairs, an M.Arch and an MBA. Nick is a licensed Architect in Virginia and Florida, and has received PMP, LEED AP, and CAE certifications.
