The Council of Advisors (COA), is a committee of the AIACC, providing leadership to AEP programs and activities and advocating for Emerging Professionals’ issues throughout California. Comprised of AIA members at all stages of their career, both elected by The AIACC Board of Directors and appointed by the AIACC President, this group guides all AEP activities within the organization.
In addition to the COA, the leadership of the Academy is also comprised of 22 local Chapter Emerging Professional Directors. Each AIA Chapter in the state selects one individual to represent their local Chapter in the Academy. These individuals are the key contacts through which the AEP disseminates information to all California AIA Chapters, in-turn, the EP Directors disseminate the information to all Emerging Professionals in their respective chapters.
