Board Member Election

Members of The Architectural League play an important role in its governance. At the League’s Annual Meeting, members elect the organization’s directors and officers, who oversee the League’s operations and its professional staff. The proposed slate of officers and directors is nominated by a committee of the League’s current Board and approved by the full Board. By casting their votes, members empower proxies (the League’s President, Secretary, and Executive Director) to officially cast ballots on their behalf at the League’s Annual Meetings.

The League’s Annual Meeting

The League’s Annual Meeting takes place in June. Date and location to be announced in late spring.
