Laura Heim is honored to be serving as Co-Chair in her third and final year on AIANY Fellows Committee 2023. The Fellows Committee provides outreach and encouragement to the membership to apply for this national honor. The role includes outreach, nomination and review of portfolios to be submitted to the AIA National Fellows jury for consideration. Architects who have made significant contributions to the profession and society and who exemplify architectural excellence are members of the AIA College of Fellows. Only 3 percent of the AIA members have this distinction. The committee strives to make the process clear and open to all who are eligible.
