AIA Center for Civic Leadership
The mission of the AIA Center for Civic Leadership is to advance leadership among architects to promote livable, healthy, sustainable, and quality-designed environments for future generations through community participation and advocacy.
In coordination with the CCL Mission Statement, the goal of the CCL is to focus on the three main aspects identified for architects to become more involved as leaders – 1) the development of a Leadership Institute, 2) identification, recognition, and promotion of Citizen Architects, and 3) the evaluation, creation, and maintenance of Leadership Resources. Although CCL volunteer members are instrumental in the development of all three of these aspects of leadership, AIA staff will be critical to maintain consistent coordination of CCL programs, database assistance, and the assurance that AIA members receive a cohesive message about architects as leaders in their professional, community, or political spheres.
