2015 AIA Detroit Board Elections

To:  AIA Detroit Board Nominees
 
This year, the AIA Detroit Board of Directors has formally recognized, agreed to, and documented the direction and methods our Chapter will use to support the Vision of AIA Detroit.  This is not a radical change in direction; rather, it is the result of the work of past Boards and Presidents as we have purposefully and carefully adjusted our course to best support the membership and the profession by
 
• Energizing and supporting our emerging professionals so that they recognize the importance of becoming registered and participating in the AIA.
• Reaching outwards to the broader design community to collaborate and partner with like minds and efforts to spotlight the positive impact design has on the environment.
• Taking action by involving ourselves in key community and civic initiatives that are shaping our city and region.
• Merging the work of committees and Board so that they are mutually supportive.
• Become active and influential participants in the historic changes developing in the City of Detroit.
 
In order to effectively move forward, support and further enhance our stated direction, Board members must be active participants in our initiatives and programs.  If you are willing to commit your time and energy to meet each month as a member of the AIA Detroit Board and to dedicate additional time and energy outside of those Board meetings to actively engage in initiatives and programs, then this is your opportunity.  This is the expectation of all AIA Detroit Board members moving forward.

2014 AIA Detroit President

VOLUNTEER PROFILE | Ashley Flintoff, EPC Member

AIA Detroit is continuing its series highlighting members within all of the committees. This installment, we are featuring Ashley Flintoff, a member of the Emerging Professionals Committee. Find out more about Ashley below!

1. Where do you work and what do you do there?

I’m a Project Manager for SmithGroupJJR

2. Where did you go to college and what’s your degree in?

Bachelors of Science in Architecture from UDM and currently pursuing a Masters of Arts in Community Development from UDM

3. What do you do when you’re not working and EPC’ing?

I am an active member of the UDM School of Architecture Alumni Council as well as the AIA Detroit Emerging Professionals Committee and I served as Associate Director to the AIA Detroit Board for 2011. I am also a founding member and Secretary/Treasurer of the Board of Directors for the Volterra-Detroit Foundation, and the Events and Social Media Director for Michigan Retired Greyhounds As Pets. In my spare time, I practice yoga, love photography and travel and am a social media junkie. I've been a Project Manager at SmithGroupJJR since 2011.

4. How long have you been on the EPC?

I have been a member of the EPC since 2007.

5. What do you like about the EPC that keeps you active?

The camaraderie. That and the opportunity to connect young professionals with the industry and the city.

6. What contributions that you have made to the EPC are you proud of?

Instituting the Social Events committee to get young professionals out of the office and socializing. Hopefully I’ve shown newer members that we need to get involved in our organization and in our communities in order to really make a difference. One person can do amazing things if you are passionate and engaged.

7. Is there any affinity toward the AIA that you have that motivates you, or what are your feelings about the AIA/AIA Detroit?

I truly believe that engagement with students and young professionals is vital to the sustainability of this organization. These are the future members and these are the people that will ensure that the AIA and AIA Detroit is around for generations. The work of the EPC has been a great asset for AIA Detroit and the AIA in general but we are not done. The challenge is to get members outside of the EPC to engage, get involved and to contribute. The EPC is simply one piece of the puzzle, without the collaboration and interaction of other committees and other members, we cannot survive. We all need to work together to raise this organization to higher levels and to truly serve our community.
