The induction of new fellows takes place annually at the AIBD summer conference awards gala, where we come together to honor and recognize their remarkable achievements.

Being a Fellow not only signifies great accomplishment but also comes with important responsibilities.

These initiatives include the nationally renowned "SkillsUSA" architectural drafting competition, "Design & Build Day" student conferences, student chapter grants, and numerous other outreach activities aimed at supporting and nurturing the next generation of building design professionals.

In addition to these significant responsibilities, we are thrilled to announce that the College has recently launched a new program offering professional business coaching.

This is an exciting opportunity for our Fellows to further enhance their skills and expertise in the industry.
