College of Fellows (COF) Committee 

The AIA College of Fellows (COF) seeks to stimulate a sharing of interests among Fellows, promote the purposes of the Institute, advance the profession of architecture, mentor young architects, and be of ever-increasing service to society. The College of Fellows, founded in 1952, is composed of members of the Institute who are elected to Fellowship by a jury of their peers. Fellowship is one of the highest honors the AIA can bestow upon a member. Elevation to Fellowship not only recognizes the achievements of the architect as an individual but also elevates before the public and the profession those architects who have made significant contributions to architecture and to society.

College of Fellows Committee Goals

  • Offer guidance to various aspects of the chapter’s activities

  •  Act as a source for AIA Honolulu’s mentorship program

  •  Meet with Hawaii state governors to offer assistance in statewide planning, offering architectural and planning advice and assisting as needed. 

  •  Standard meetings discuss three design related topics. Topics typically include planning and architectural issues throughout the state and city. Topics are proposed by attendees; three are voted on for discussion.

  •  Work with current AIA Honolulu member architects to educate them about the COF, and encourage pursuing fellowship. If appropriate, COF assigns a mentor who assists in compiling the required information and nominates the individual for Fellowship.

  •  The goal is to have at least one architect from Hawaii elevated to Fellowship each year.
