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.
