During 2019 AIA Georgia will be working with the AIA Southwest Georgia, West Georgia, and Augusta chapters as they transition from chapters into sections of AIA Georgia. Ideally, these changes will allow a partnership between the state chapter and local leadership to provide a higher level of member services, while still retaining a local character for the members in those areas.
However, creating sections under a state chapter is a new concept in our Association, and requires a change to our bylaws to allow it. We are posting the changes on our website here, along with an explanation of what the change means. You can also view our current bylaws from this webpage.
Additionally, AIA Georgia wishes to create an appointed position on its board of directors ensuring that at least one of the new sections will always be represented on the state board. There is a bylaws change allowing this new position as well.
