AIA Honolulu The Honolulu Chapter of The American Institute of Architects

2017 Annual Report

Letter from Our 2018 President Aloha, As 2018 kicks into full gear, your AIA Honolulu board has fantastic energy and is highly motivated to continue the organization’s endless work for our membership. I look forward to continuing the great work of our past presidents, as well as our outgoing board members who have worked so hard to make AIA Honolulu an incredible professional organization. I firmly believe that what you put into AIA, you get out tenfold, and I encourage you to get involved and help continue to guide our organization to even greater heights. Our five-year strategic plan is in full swing and continues to produce results, as can be seen throughout our 2017 Annual Report. The Center for Architecture is now the proud home of AIA Honolulu, AIA Hawaii State Council and Hawaii Architectural Foundation (HAF). We are very excited about our newly formed relationship with HAF, as it allows us to collectively provide an even stronger voice to achieve our similar goals. We have a robust year of upcoming events planned, so keep reading our e-newsletter for information about what’s happening with your local chapter. I’m also excited to announce that in November, AIA Honolulu, in collaboration with the UH at Manoa School of Architecture and a large number of organizations from throughout Hawaii, will be hosting “Building Voices – Livable Cities and Communities”, a Hawaii Design Symposium coupled with the AIA Northwest and Pacific Region Leadership Summit, the 2018 AIA/CSI Pacific Building Trade Expo and the 2018 AIA Honolulu Design Awards. On behalf of your 2018 Board of Directors, we are truly grateful for your membership. Geoffrey Lewis, AIA 2018 AIA Honolulu President

Thanks to all of our hardworking volunteers, general membership, and staff, 2017

was another amazing year for AIA Honolulu. We saw continued success in our established programs and committees, and built the foundation for new and promising endeavors,

relationships, events, and programs. I was blessed to be a part of such an amazing board and surrounded by so many incredible people. Please enjoy this year’s annual report as a reflection to all that you do. Have a fantastic 2018! - Chris Hong, AIA, 2017 President

Driving Member Value and Engagement

AIA Honolulu’s Membership grew in 2017! AIA Honolulu membership grew by more than 50 total members in 2017, as compared to 2016. This is a testament to the hard work of all of our committees and volunteers, bringing quality programming and events that appeal to our variety of members. Through the goals and strategies outlined in the 2017-2022 Strategic Plan, our aim is to not only grow our numbers, but the quality of support, services and programs we offer to our members.

2017 AIA Honolulu Members

859 AIA Honolulu Members

502 Architects

478 Architect Members in 2016

150 Associates

143 Associate Members in 2016

94 Member Emeritus 95 Member Emeritus in 2016

113 Local Allied Members 92 Local Allied Members in 2016

In 2017, the State of Hawaii recognized 1046 Licensed Architects who consider Hawaii as their primary location. While 2017 saw an increase in overall membership, with Architects, Associates and Allied members, there is still work to be done in order to bring more local architects and design professionals into our AIA Honolulu family.

AIA Honolulu and AIA Maui need your assistance to encourage our local architects to join AIA and take advantage of the many benefits membership has to offer.


Membership in AIA Honolulu is vital to our organizational sustainability. With a

projected decline in baby boomer generation members, who currently make up the majority of our national membership, it is critical that that positive trajectory of AIA Honolulu is supported by the next generation of architects to sustain our local profession for future decades. 5

Professional Development


Established in 2017, the Emerging Professionals Committee (EPC) was created for the next generation of leaders within AIA Honolulu, developing events and initiatives to serve the unique needs of these young professionals. The Mentorship Program, YAF, ARE Prep and UH Relations fall under the umbrella of the EPC. In 2018, the EPC will introduce the EP Leadership Program as part of its family of programming.

2017 YOUNG ARCHITECTS FORUM 3 Workshop Panel Discussions - Discussions relative to the needs of young architects. Continuing education in a focused environment. 1 Hard Hat Tour - First-hand look at what's happening in our industry. 6 Pau Hanas - Casual connections and networking with members at a similar career level. The 5x5x5 Mentorship Program is built on valuing individual members’ unique career paths, diverse backgrounds and personal aspirations. As a cohort and community of like-minded colleagues, the program engages members and sister organizations, even serving as a form of reverse mentorship for the mentors. The program has also gained traction at the national level, having influenced the development of similar programs in AIA components across the country.

2 Joint Events with FAIA, providing Fellows the opportunity to get to know young architects and foster relationships with the next generation of Architects in Hawaii.

Mahalo to our YAF Sponsor

YAF creates unique, fun opportunities for education

and networking for emerging professionals, expanding well beyond the AIA borders to include a number of related

industries. We're building long-lasting relationships with

future leaders of the Design Community in Hawaii!

HOUSING COMMITTEE In 2017 the AIA Honolulu Housing Committee was created to promote the development of safe, attractive, accessible, and affordable housing. It provides leadership, advocacy, and education to the profession and the public in matters related to housing design. The committee also focuses their efforts on affordability of housing in our local community and throughout Hawaii. The committee is made up of three primary pillars, which work independently but collaboratively. 1. (THINK) Research, Policy and Design Objective: To compile, analyze, and author content to promote innovation and progression of best practices. 2. (SHARE) Collaboration and Outreach Objective: To connect a multidisciplinary network of AIA members, sister organizations, design professionals, and the general public to foster shared responsibility, resources, information, and vision. 3. (ACT) Envision and Execute Objective: To implement research concepts and outreach feedback into built projects.

Grassroots is an exclu-

sive event for AIA leaders designed to help attendees become more effective chapter and civic leaders.

The AIA Honolulu Housing Committee blog was developed to post information on various housing related issues within our community.

The FILM COMMITTEE fosters a forum for dialogue and discussion between industry professionals and the public. Through collaborations with sister organizations, the committee builds alliances and improves positioning for design professionals throughout our marketplace.

AIA HONOLULU COMMITTEES Our Committees and Task Forces are the foundations from which we position our chapter in the field of architecture through discussion, advocacy, policy making, events and other endeavors. In 2017, as part of the Strategic Plan, AIA Honolulu reviewed our committee structure and made changes to ensure that each efficiently meets the needs of all AIA Honolulu members. • Programs Committee • Architecture Month Committee • Emerging Professionals Committee • Architectural Registration Exam Prep Subcommittee • EP Leadership Program Subcommittee • Mentorship Program Subcommittee • Young Architects Forum (YAF) Subcommittee • UH Relations Subcommittee • Canstruction Committee • Design Awards Committee • Film Committee • AIA/GCA (General Contractors Association) Committee • General Membership Meeting (GMM) Committee • Housing Committee • Marketing & Communications Task Force • Pacific Building Trade Expo Seminar Subcommittee • Professional Development Committee • Regional & Urban Design Committee (RUDC) • Walking Tour Committee   For more information or to get involved, visit the new committees section of our website at

The Hawaii Architectural Foundation is a non-profit, 501c3 organization that provides a tax-deductible way to fund community-focused activities that inspire people to discover why design matters in our island communities. In 2018, as part of the Strategic Plan, we will be researching the development of a formal relationship between the two organizations, which would benefit both AIA Honolulu and HAF in terms of advocacy and public awareness, but also help diversify and broaden our non-dues revenue sources in order to grow both organizations.
