AIA Board of Directors
AIA's success is tied directly to the strategic direction provided by an active Board of Directors. The AIA Board is balanced to represent a cross section of our industry. Directors are elected by the membership to serve two year terms.
With their background experience and passion demonstrated for our industry, the board serves as the "eyes and ears" of the vision community. They serve as ambassadors of the Association and help AIA staff better understand our memberships' needs.
