Committees

The Orlando Foundation for Architecture has a number of committees that provide a mutually beneficial experience. By joining a committee, you get involved in an area of personal interest, gain an outlet for things you are good at but may not have a chance to do in your work, build your professional network, create strategies to grow & develop the architecture & design community in Central Florida, meet new people & have fun interacting, brainstorming & working with others.
The committee groups benefit from your unique skills, fresh ideas & different points of view. Your input enriches the committee's work. The more people get involved, the greater our effectiveness & impact. Committee participation is a win-win!
