2020 Call for Nominations: ACSA Committees & Task Forces

Deadline: May 20, 2020

The ACSA Board of Directors invites nominations and self-nominations from faculty at full, candidate, and affiliate member schools to participate in 2020-2021 ACSA committees, task forces, and other activities.

Volunteer appointments are initiated by the 2020-2021  ACSA president, Lynne Dearborn. Appointments are for one year beginning July 1, 2020, and are eligible for renewal thereafter. Individuals who responded to last year’s call will remain in the pool of candidates but may also send revised information.

Committees will work primarily through conference calls during the academic year. A funded meeting is planned for committees October 4. Committees may also convene at the 2020 Administrators Conference and 2021 Annual Meeting.

Interested participants are asked to submit a 1-page cover letter identifying areas of interest related to ACSA’s committees and strategic plan, as well as a 2-page (maximum) curriculum vitae. The deadline for nominations and self-nominations is May 20, 2020. Submit materials in a single PDF file to Michelle Sturges,

About Volunteer Opportunities

The ACSA board relies on three Program Committees to involve members and carry out the goals of the strategic plan through products such as, webinars, white paperssurveys, and recommendations to the board.

ACSA seeks to identify additional members to participate in the Program Committees as well as other task forces and peer review bodies for ACSA conferences, competitions, and awards. (Read the newly published ACSA strategic plan here.)

The three Program Committees are charged as follows:

  • The Research & Scholarship Committee is charged with leading ACSA’s efforts to support faculty in scholarly endeavors; monitoring and assessing peer-review and recognition programs; and recommending actions to advocate for architectural scholarship.
  • The Education Committee is charged with leading ACSA’s efforts to improve the effectiveness of architectural education through best practices and overseeing programs to cultivate and disseminate these best practices.
  • The Leadership Committee is charged with leading ACSA’s efforts to support the strategic development of architecture programs; identifying and disseminating best-practice models of program leadership and administration; and overseeing ACSA’s efforts to promote awareness of architectural education.
