The Architecture Lobby is organized as a decentralized network of Chapters around the country. The Chapters are comprised by Lobby members forming diverse groups of architectural students, young, mid-career, and senior professionals, firm owners, design journalists, and academics, and are led by rotating Chapter Stewards. The activities of the Lobby are supported by an Organizing Committee, with annually-elected officers for Content, Communication, Finance, Organization, Research, Design, and Secretary.National-scale projects are discussed and decided in the Lobby Organizing Committee and in national member’s meetings (which happen over the web). Chapters will typically engage with these projects and are also encouraged to self-organize projects and events of specific concerns to their locality and their chapter membership. As a non-profit corporation, , the Lobby is governed by aBoard of Directors who are elected by the dues-paying members of the Lobby. There will be a future proposal for a set of procedures to elect Board members as their terms expire. The Architecture Lobby, Inc. Current Board of Directors.
