About Us

The AIA North Central States Region is a designation by AIA National for the states of Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.

The North Central States Region is represented by two Directors, the YARD and RAD, who sit on the National Board and help guide policy matters for AIA National. Each month, these Directors coordinate a North Central States Regional conference call with representatives from each of the states in the region to discuss issues for both the region and at the national level. 

The AIA North Central States Region Emerging Professionals Committee evolved out of an interest to better engage professionals earlier in their career. Our demographic is the very future of the profession, and this committee is looking to advocate for our interests to the leadership of our local, state and national chapters.

Each volunteer member is nominated to serve a two-year term on the AIA NCSR Emerging Professionals Committee. Our members include both Associate AIA members, YAF (Young Architects Forum), and more seasoned professionals representing the universities and the larger profession.
