AIA San Francisco News

Announcing AIA San Francisco’s New Executive Director, Jennifer Jones

Message from the President

“With great anticipation for an amazing future and the beginning of a new chapter in our storied history, the AIA SF Board of Directors welcomes Jennifer Jones, CAE, as our new Executive Director. Jennifer joins us at a pivotal point in a year of transition as the shifting market challenges us as professionals and members to be more forward-thinking, more innovative, and stronger in our commitment to equity and the value of the profession. Initiatives and issues including the evolving Missing 32% project, AIASF’s call to the national organization to move Repositioning toward something more potent (and closely akin to restructuring), the ongoing development of creative and responsive programming supporting emerging professionals, and a focus on publicly sharing the value and relevance of architects and architecture require continued attention, support and advancement.

Jennifer is the culmination of everything we had envisioned in an Executive Director. She understands our issues and will unabashedly be our voice and our guide. She comes to us with dynamic energy and unfettered optimism. She is an insightful visionary, a strong leader, and an incredible collaborator. Her background includes a Master of Science degree in Public Service + Non-profit Administration from DePaul University, leadership of another design-focused membership-driven organization, international speaking engagements, and a clear long-term commitment to building community.

Jennifer will begin an exciting journey with us on September 2nd, joining the skilled and dedicated team at AIA SF just in time for the launch of our annual Architecture in the City Festival. She will help welcome leaders from the largest Chapters around the country to San Francisco for the Big Sibs conference in October, and greet all of you at our annual membership party in November. We hope you will take the opportunity to welcome Jennifer and celebrate a new beginning for the chapter.”

About Jennifer Jones

“Jennifer Jones, MS, CAE, IOM comes to AIASF from the International Association of Lighting Designers [IALD] headquartered in Chicago where she served as the Director of Integrated Communications + Technology. Upon joining IALD in 2006, she spearheaded the revitalization of the IALD brand and its web site, assisting in the creation of an award-winning, internationally friendly visual identity, representative of the professionalism and creativity of the association’s membership.

Under Jenn’s guidance, the IALD received a number of awards for its social networking, global growth and communications strategies, including the inaugural Publisher’s Choice Award at the 2010 Association TRENDS All-Media Awards, created to recognize the IALD’s exemplary multi-channel grassroots mobilization effort in response to legislation in Texas restricting the practice of architectural lighting design. Jenn is a frequent presenter on the subjects of social media, technology, brand management, fundraising and government-relations professionals.

Jenn has an MS in Public Service & Nonprofit Management from DePaul University, and was a 2006 DePaul Public Service Fellow. She received her BS in Journalism and Sociology from Eastern Michigan University. When not dreaming about association management, computers or music (another life-long passion), you can find her in Central America, diving and eating fresh mangoes all day, every day.

“I look forward to continuing to serve the design/build community as an association professional, and getting to know the unique needs of local architects and allied professionals as they practice in the San Francisco Bay Area, and beyond. I am fortunate to have received the opportunity to champion design, and its direct link to quality of life, in one of the most impressive cities for aesthetically and technically masterful structures, large and small. I cannot wait to get started.”
– Jennifer Jones
