SAR Voting Process

AIA Georgia members had the privilege of electing the next Regional Director to represent the South Atlantic Region (SAR) from January 2020 to December 2022. This individual will also serve on the AIA Strategic Council. This is a rare opportunity for the elected member to gain unique experience working on AIA issues at the national, regional and local levels, and the added chance to build a national network of colleagues who will be retained for the length of a career.

AIA Georgia, representing more than 2,100 architects and associates across the state, is interested in identifying highly qualified candidates for all positions with AIA. If interested in other leadership positions please contact David Southerland (information at right).

Congratulations to our new Regional Director!

Cheryl McAfee, FAIA
2020-2022 SAR Regional Director Nominee

I am requesting your support for my candidacy to serve on the Strategic Council of the AIA as the Georgia Representative for the South Atlantic Region. The Strategic Council is a hardworking and engaging team of three (3) for the Southeast Region. The Council is tasked with “ideation/research/generative” though based activities both nationally and in our region. That said, the Council has the flexibility to focus on areas and interests beyond that of the AIA Board of Directors, and to think forward to long-term as well as immediate subjects facing the profession. Most importantly, the Council is the primary conduit for ideas, needs of the professions, and opportunities from our members to the AIA Board.

I am a small business professional with a career spanning over 40 years. As the CEO of McAfee3 Architects, Inc., a legacy practice that was founded by my father and incorporated in 1963, I am passionate about the relevance and importance of service to our profession, membership and our communities…
