The Design Excellence Committee is a group of architects and designers that educate, recognize and promote design excellence to Chapter members and the community. Our committee does this through events, competitions, lectures and awards programs. We invite and encourage participation from anyone interested in the field of architecture and design, and we are constantly broadening our reach and creating new outlets to share the excellent design work of our community.
