The American Institute of Architects announced new leadership last week at its annual conference, which was held June 6-8 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas. The organization also celebrated 50 years of its MasterSpec guide.


Three new leaders were elected to AIA’s Board of Directors including:

  • Peter Exley, FAIA, of AIA Chicago/AIA Illinois as the 2020 first vice president/2021 president-elect; 
  • Evelyn Lee, AIA, of AIA San Francisco/AIA California as the 2020–21 treasurer; and
  • Britt Lindberg, AIA, LEED AP, of AIA Silicon Valley/AIA California as the 2020-22 at-large-director.

Exley is currently an at-large-director on the AIA National Board and chairs the Public Outreach Committee. Previously, he served on the Government Advocacy Committee as the Illinois Regional Representative on the Strategic Council as well as the board liaison to the Young Architects Forum. In 2013, Exley was the President of AIA Chicago. He is the co-founder and director of Architecture Is Fun Inc.

Lee currently serves as an at-large-director on the AIA National Board. She also served as the AIA California Council Regional Director and the Young Architects Forum Chair. Lee works as a strategy consultant.

Lindberg served as the 2018 president of AIA California and served on the chapter’s board of directors 2013-18. She was also the 2014 president of AIA Silicon Valley and was a founding member of the chapter’s Women in Architecture Committee. Lindberg is an architect with the firm Gensler.


The organization also celebrated 50 years of its specification and guidance software MasterSpec, which launched in 1969.

“AIA has been integral to the practice of architecture since its founding in 1857,” said AIA EVP/Chief Executive Officer Robert Ivy, FAIA.

“For the past five decades, MasterSpec has been a prime example of how AIA helps architects protect the health, safety and welfare of the public in their everyday practice.”

AIA collaborates with Deltek + Avitru—which uses a team of AEC knowledge experts—to provide comprehensive architect product selection support and guidance for every step of the construction documentation process, according to the association.
