About AIA Bucks County

In 1961, eleven architects – Louis Goldberg, President; Stephen Hazzard, Treasurer; William H. Roberts, Secretary; G. Harold Haag, Director; Dana Stetser, Director; Paul d’Entremont, Doug Gilmour, Donald Hedges, Frederick Lantz, Fred Martin, and John Sabatino – living in Bucks County split off from Philadelphia and incorporated their own local chapter of the AIA on February 1, 1961. National AIA had previously subdivided other chapters to form new local organizations. The formation of the Bucks County Chapter marked the first chapter to form from a grassroots effort. The Chapter currently has about 90 members.

2022 Chapter Committees

The Chapter is looking to initiate some new committees that will allow for more membership participation throughout the year and will help the Chapter run more efficiently and have the potential to grow within the region. We ask for everyone’s help through participation in one or more committees. Expand committee list and descriptions below and contact the appropriate person to sign up!

As a contributor of the Membership Committee, your primary goals will include the recruitment of new architect, associate and allied members and the retention of existing members.

You may participate in regular regional (AIA PA) conference calls with the membership committee members from the other chapters in our region to discuss strategies, successes and stories of your efforts in accomplishing your membership goals.
