    The AAJ is implementing a new structure to promote short and long-term planning of strategic, actionable initiatives that align with the mission and goals of the Academy of Architecture for Justice Knowledge Community.


    This process is intended to support the development of tangible deliverables, tools, research, resources, and presentations that support the mission and goals of the Academy of Architecture for Justice Knowledge Community.

    2. Initiative champions are invited to provide a brief overview of their proposed initiative during the all-membership meetings and solicit support and participation from the membership.
    3. AAJ LG and AIA staff will review requests bi-monthly and request clarification if required with the goal of approving or rejecting the request for initiative support before the next scheduled all membership meeting.
