Make the most of your AIA Colorado membership by getting involved in a committee or throwing your hat in the ring for a leadership position.

We offer a variety of opportunities for you to share your perspective, roll up your sleeves, and help advance the profession. From committees to Local Advisory Councils to serving on our Board of Directors, there is something for everyone. The call for volunteers opens annually in November.
