Candidates for AIA 2023 First Vice President / 2024 President-Elect


With the A’22 Conference on Architecture scheduled from June 22 to 25, elections for The American Institute of Architects new board leadership are upon us. From June 10 to 14, accredited AIA delegates will cast their votes for the Institute’s national level leadership, and, in the event of a runoff, a second round will take place from June 15 to 17. These delegates, each selected by their local chapters, must be AIA members—Architect, Emeritus, Associate, or International Associate—in good standing.

As is tradition, ARCHITECT asked each candidate running for elective office about their qualifications, platform, and outlook on the profession. Below, you will meet Kimberly Dowdell, AIA, and Evelyn Lee, FAIA, the two candidates running for the dual role of 2023 first vice president/2024 president-elect. Responses have been lightly edited for clarity. You can also find videos of the candidates presenting their platforms at the end of this article.
