Call for 2015 CAE Advisory Group Member - Due October 15, 2014

From the Chair:

The Committee on Architecture for Education (CAE) is a large and active group of architects and allied professionals concerned with the quality and design of all types of educational, cultural, and recreational facilities. While a large portion of our members practice in the K-12 and post-secondary education markets, we look to serve the needs of those in the entire pre-K to 99 markets. CAE identifies national educational facility issues critical to architects and works to strengthen relationships with allied organizations, client groups, and the public. On behalf of CAE, we encourage all to participate in our international discourse by applying to serve on the 5-person advisory group.

    subcommittee work, CAE awards, etc.).
  • Skills (include curriculum vitae outlining learning environment design, awards, publications, speaking events, knowledge sharing; what are the particular skills that you would bring to the committee that complement the existing AG).
  • Vision (what would you like to accomplish during your appointment as an AG member)

Duties and Expectations
