Liza Medek new Registrar for the RAIC College of Fellows

Liza Medek (Planner, Major Projects, Facilities, University of Ottawa) has been elected, by her peers, Registrar for the RAIC College of Fellows and will officially begin her three-year term in October 2022.

She is an experienced Professional with a diverse history working as an Architect, Planner, Senior Project Manager, academic administrator, educator/professor and technology advisor. Liza is committed to educating the public to improve their knowledge of the built environment and strongly stands behind the words: architecture matters. She succeeds Claudio Brun del Re.

“I look forward to contributing to the continued success of the RAIC College,” says Liza.

The mission of the College of Fellows, founded in 1941, is to strengthen and reinforce efforts of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) in its endeavor to enhance and develop the profession of architecture.

The College of Fellows formally recognizes members and distinguished laypersons who have made outstanding contributions to the profession. Fellowship in the RAIC is an honour conferred on members singled out for their contribution to research, scholarship, public service or professional standing to the good of architecture in Canada, or elsewhere.

Fellowship is bestowed for life and is one of the highest honours the Institute can confer upon a member.
