Who we are

The mission of the Historic Resources Committee (HRC) is to identify, understand, and preserve architectural heritage, both nationally and internationally. HRC is engaged in promoting the role of the historic architect within the profession through the development of information and knowledge among members, allied professional organizations, and the public.

We hope you'll join us February 7-8 at the annual HRC Taliesin Colloquium where we'll discuss how codes have impacted existing buildings and what to expect from upcoming code changes.

HRC Advisory Group Nominations

2020 nominations will open in the fall of 2019.

General information and expectations

The AIA Knowledge Communities are volunteer member-led special interest groups of the AIA national organization. They help members to connect with others who share the same passions and commitment—and develop a project that advances the profession and the collective work of the AIA. Traditionally each group is led by five leaders and supported by project-based committees along with partial AIA staff support.

As an AIA Knowledge Community, the AIA Historic Resources Committee's (HRC) mission is to identify, understand, and preserve architectural heritage, both nationally and internationally. HRC is engaged in promoting the role of the historic architect within the profession through the development of information and knowledge among members, allied professional organizations, and the public. On behalf of HRC, we encourage all to participate in our international discourse by applying to serve in a leadership role. The HRC Advisory Group (AG) is comprised of five members who serve for up to five years.
