Committees

2016 AIA Maryland Committees & Board Liaisons

All committees are led by a Chair and open to all AIA members for participation. Committee chairs provide assistance to committee members and provide feedback to the Board of Directors on a monthly basis.

We welcome and encourage the participation of AIA Maryland members to volunteer their time to work with any of these committees. Interested members may contact either the committee chair or the AIA Maryland office at info@aiamd.org for further information.
