ACSA REPRESENTATIVE ON NAAB BOARD OF DIRECTORS New Deadline: October 27, 2007
The 2008–09 National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB) will comprise thirteen members: three representing ACSA, three representing AIA, three representing NCARB, two representing AIAS, and two public members. Currently Christine Theadoropolous of the University of Oregon, Thomas Fowler of Cal Poly State University, and Wendy Ornelas of Kansas State University represent ACSA on the NAAB Board. With the expiration of Christine Theadoropolous’ term in October 2008, the ACSA Board of Directors is considering candidates for her successor at its meeting this November in Minneapolis, MN. The appointment is for a three-year term (Oct. 2008 – Oct. 2011) and calls for a person willing and able to make a commitment to NAAB. The final appointment will be made by the sitting NAAB board itself through selection from a pool of names established by this call for nominations. While previous experience as an ACSA board member or administrator is helpful, it is not essential for nomination. Some experience on NAAB visiting teams should be considered necessary; otherwise the nominee might be unfamiliar with the highly complex series of deliberations involved with this position. Faculty and administrators are asked to nominate faculty from an ACSA member school with any or all the following qualifications:
