The American Institute of Architects (AIA) reports that it has elected Elizabeth Chu Richter, the CEO of Richter Architects in Corpus Christi, Texas, to serve as the 2014 AIA first vice president/president-elect and 2015 AIA president.  James Easton Rains, Jr., FAIA, and Thomas V. Vonier, FAIA, will each serve as vice president from 2014 through 2015; James P. Grounds, AIA, will be the Institute’s Treasurer.

Chu Richter’s statement: “I’m hoping that my leadership will help bring the AIA into a more member-focused future, building greater public engagement and understanding, while also refining the Institute’s leadership structure and operation focus. More than ever, the repositioned AIA will be highly valued and globally relevant in its service to society in building a better world.”
