On this site you will find documents and resources to help you in your duties as a local AIA component leader. Some of the very basic activities like establishing a budget, making sure by-laws are up to date and verifying that you are providing services consistent with AIA policies and procedures are contained in the links on the left hand side of this page.

As always, AIA North Carolina staff is here to help you with your service to the section - so please don't hesitate to call on us if you can't find what you are looking for on this site.


Section Leader's Toolkit


AIA Component Survey - The Component Excellence Survey examines services and programs AIA members should expect from their organization, as well as the financial, legal, and management practices that should be followed. These guidelines replace the Performance Standards and were created to help components mark their successes, evaluate possible shortcomings, and encourage component best practices.
