Get involved in leadership

General information and expectations

As an AIA Knowledge Community, IAKC is committed to advancing the practice of Interior Architecture by providing its membership with resources to elevate their professional practice and design excellence. IAKC serves to facilitate a national dialogue that addresses a range of key issues, including innovative design and programming, the incorporation of sustainable materials and technologies, and the social, cultural, and spatial impact of architecture on human experience. We seek to address national issues with regional sensitivity, providing a platform for our membership to share knowledge, gain expertise, and form collaborative relationships with industry peers and allied partners. We encourage all to participate in our international discourse by applying to serve on the national Advisory Group (AG).
