After nearly six years of service to AIA Colorado, Executive Vice President and CEO Cathy Rosset will be stepping down from her position in mid-November to explore the next phase of her career in nonprofit leadership. We are grateful for all that she has done for AIA Colorado, as well as her service to AIA chapters and members nationally.
Rosset has had a significant impact on our organization. Under her guidance, AIA Colorado eliminated administrative redundancies and carved out resources to fully support advocacy: creating a full-time government affairs staff position and expanding our political fundraising and influence through founding the Architects of Colorado Small Donor Committee. She oversaw the creation of financial tools for the Board of Directors that more clearly evaluate expenditures against return on investment in strategic, value-based programs. During her tenure, she focused on elevating member communications, increasing public awareness and developing a professional, talented and collaborative staff.
To ease and expedite this transition, the board has already established an Executive Search Task Force, charged with refining the current Executive Vice President/CEO role description and initiating a nationwide recruiting process. While Rosset will be missed, the board is optimistic that a new leader will quickly emerge and will be poised to lead our organization and Colorado architects into the future. Please direct inquiries to AIA Colorado President Carl Hole, AIA.
