NEW YORK – June 22, 2018 – The American Institute of Architects (AIA) announces three new leaders to its Board of Directors, which were elected at the AIA Conference on Architecture 2018 (A’18).
At the meeting, AIA delegates elected:
Jane Frederick, FAIA of AIA South Carolina as the 2019 first vice president/2020 president-elect; Jason Winters, AIA of AIA Chesapeake Bay/AIA Maryland as the 2019-2020 secretary; and Jessica Sheridan, AIA of AIA New York as the at-large director.
From 2016 to 2017, Frederick served as an at-large director of the AIA Board of Directors while chairing the Board Public Outreach Committee and serving on the Board Visibility & Engagement Task Force. Previously, she served as the regional director of the South Atlantic Region from 2012 to 2015. Frederick also chaired the Small Firm Round Table’s Executive Committee in 2014 and served as president of AIA South Carolina in 2010. She has been a principal at Frederick + Frederick Architects since 1989 and received her B.Arch. from Auburn University.
“To create a future with better buildings, better communities and a better world, we have to be flexible, nimble and seize opportunities to turn dilemmas into advantages,” Frederick said. “As architects, when we are at our best, we don’t talk about the future—we create it.”
