Proposed Amendments to AIA Minnesota Bylaws
At the 2020 business meeting, a virtual event on December 2, 2020, there will be a vote of the AIA Minnesota membership on whether to amend the Bylaws to recognize all National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB) educational institutions located within Minnesota. Specific amendments would adjust AIA Minnesota board of directors composition to include representatives from each NAAB educational institution located within Minnesota; and revises the distribution of assets equally among NAAB educational institutions located within Minnesota in the event of dissolution of AIA Minnesota, and prior dissolution of the Minnesota Architecture Foundation (MAF).
In February 2020, Dunwoody College of Technology’s Bachelor of Architecture degree program was granted accreditation by the NAAB. Dunwoody College of Technology joined the University of Minnesota as the second NAAB accredited educational institution in Minnesota. Current Bylaws focus on the University of Minnesota, while proposed revisions are inclusive of all NAAB accredited programs within the state.
In advance of the member congress, we ask that you review the Proposed Bylaws Amendments. If you have any questions about these proposed amendments to the Bylaws, please contact Deputy Executive Director Amber Allardyce, Hon. AIAMN, who will ensure the appropriate AIA Minnesota representatives respond to your questions in a timely manner.
