AAA Council

The AAA is governed by a Council of Architects and Licensed Interior Designer who have been elected by the Membership. The Minister of Human Resources and Employment also appoints a Public Representative to enrich Council discussions, particularly those with public implications, and opens the workings of the Association to the public. 

Additionally, the Dean of the Architecture Program at the University of Calgary, the Chair of Mount Royal University's Faculty of Applied Interior Design and Chair of the RAIC Centre for Architecture at Athabasca University sit on council as ex-officio members. Their presence ensures a continual flow of information between the Professions and Alberta's educational institutions.

The AAA Council is an empowered body that is ultimately responsible to the membership to ensure the Architects Act is fulfilled. Some of the responsibilities of Council include:
  • demonstrating its values and mission to its members, stakeholders and the wider community;
  • maintaining, implementing and chieving good governance practices;
  • establishing and monitoring the AAA Strategic Plan; and
  • determining annual fees and approving annual budget.
A detailed explanation of Council expectations can be found in the Council Terms of Reference.
