The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) is inviting nominations for the College of Fellows. The College of Fellows of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) bestows Fellowship to RAIC members in recognition of outstanding achievement.
Nominate your colleagues and peers for Fellowship in the RAIC. Fellowship is bestowed in recognition of achievements of excellence in architecture based on design excellence represented by past awards; outstanding scholarly contribution represented by research, publications, and education; or distinguished service to the profession or the community.
- Nominations of new Fellows are now welcome to be submitted by e-mail to the Chairman of your Regional Committee for review; hard-copy signatures on letters can be replaced with electronic signatures. Hard-copy nominations will also be accepted. Please refer to the listing of Regional Chairs on the last page of this document.
- Nomination for Fellowship is CONFIDENTIAL AND MUST REMAIN ANONYMOUS. All nominators are required to maintain confidentiality with no direct contact whatsoever between nominators and the nominee related to the nomination.
- The candidate must both be a member in good standing and have been a member of the RAIC for at least five years prior to the nomination as a Fellow.
- Five members (at least one of whom must be a Fellow) are required for each nomination. One of the nominators should be designated as the “primary nominator” and shall ensure all documentation is submitted correctly to the Regional Chair in the region in which the nominee normally resides.
- A nominee must not solicit his or her nomination in any form what so ever. (NOTE: No two nominators may be from the same architectural firm or faculty. A member may only support one nomination in a given year)
- All nominators must be members in good standing of the RAIC and must support only one nominee.
