Congratulations to our Newly Elected Board Member

AIA Philadelphia recently announced that Paul Avazier, AIA, LEED AP, was elected to the 2016-2017 AIA Board of Directors. Paul will join other Board members in advocating on behalf of the architecture community and profession. Paul began his involvement with the Philadelphia AIA in 2007 as a member of the Associate Committee where he chaired events including Stories from an Architect and Construction Tours. During his time as Associate Director, Paul worked to implement the Mentoring Program that brings together individuals of varying experience levels to meet and discuss the profession. Through his involvement, Paul has worked with many individuals to advance their careers. His dedication to shaping future professionals extends to our office, where Paul has helped guide new graduates and employees with project management, design documentation and detailing, and ARE preparation.

“Our profession is ever evolving, and I have an interest in helping to continue and expand the great programs that the Associate Committee and Young Architects Forum are involved with, while working with the chapter to develop ways to support professional advancement for those transitioning from licensure candidates into managerial positions.” -Paul Avazier, AIA, LEED AP
