The College of Fellows is composed of members of the Institute who are elected to Fellowship by a jury of their peers. It is one of the highest honors the AIA can bestow upon a member. Elevation to Fellowship not only recognizes the achievements of the architect as an individual but also elevates before the public and the profession those architects who have made significant contributions to architecture and to society.
Each year, this group facilitates and supports nominations of potential Fellows within AIA Kansas City. If you are interested in applying please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
