AIA COTE Knowledge Community
The national AIA offers many online forums known as Knowledge Communities, which share information about industry topics. This Knowledge Community shares interests with our own, and may be a good resource for those interested in our committee.


2021 CALL FOR BSA COTE LEADERSHIP

Every three years, the co-chair positions of BSA COTE change hands. We are unique among a handful of knowledge communities that choose their leaders through a democratic process - by voting. If you are interested in throwing your hat into the ring, please send a statement of intent with your vision for the next three years of COTE to Susan Green, BSA Committee Engagement Manager. The term for chairs is three years and only two chairs may serve at a time. To view the vision statements of Michael Grant and Alejandra Menchaca, click here. And to view those of their predecessors Blake Jackson and Steven Burke, click here . Elections will take place during the June 2021 meeting. Looking forward to seeing you on the campaign trail!
