Allied Members are not Architects, but are professionals in related fields, who collaborate with and support Architects in the creation of the built environment.

In January of 2019, the American Institute of Architects, Central Valley Chapter started development of a revised 2020-2025 Strategic Plan at our annual leadership retreat.

Development of the plan will focus on three key areas: accountability, transparency, and sustainability.

The Strategic Plan Steering Committee will meet regularly to define guiding principals, engage key stakeholders and strategically evaluate our current programs and activities. Committee members include:

Christopher Holt, AIA, Vice President & Committee Chair
Genevieve Vargas, AIA, President
Ida Clair, AIA, Treasurer
Paul Menard, AIA Secretary
Mike Parrott, AIA
Pete Kreuser, Allied Member / Sustaining Partner
John Hammond, AIA
James Theimer, AIA
