    We are looking for members to help with updates to the AIA Framework for Design Excellence toolkit as well work on a Climate Action Practice Guide. We want a wide variety of voices and perspectives to help. Please submit your name for consideration or share this ask with your friends or colleagues.

    Additional project information:
    The toolkit updates have two levels of volunteer engagement opportunities. We are looking for a task group of ten individuals with one person to lead the update of each principle. They will coordinate with a small team of 2-3 people for additional feedback and perspective. So additional volunteers will have a smaller commitment than the lead,. The task group will reconnect to harmonize the information collected within each principle and then discuss how it all works collectively.

    The practice guide will have a 2-3 meetings at the beginning to brainstorm content and give guidance to the consultant on what needs to be in the guide. These volunteers will then review drafts and give feedback as they come in throughout the fall.  

    If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out!
