2018 STATE CHAPTER INITIATIVE
We have been working to create a better AIA in Oregon to support a connected community of architects in every corner of the state. Over the last two weeks of July the Oregon delegates and our chapter board unanimously approved a resolution to proceed with the plan of Merger consolidating into a single state chapter. Ballots are being given to all members of every chapter to vote. LEARN MORE
DO WE HAVE YOUR CORRECT ADDRESS?
AIASWO has prepared ballots along with the Plan of Merger and a draft of the new bylaws and articles of incorporation to all AIA-SWO members. The statewide goal is to have this vote during the month of August using mail-in ballots. The Ballots have been sent out, so watch your mail!
