The AIA Trust is governed by a group of six AIA members and one AIA component executive who serve as trustees, appointed by the AIA President.

Each year there is at least one opening on the board of trustees for a five-year term. Qualified and interested candidates can complete the current call for nominations questionnaire. The trustees aim to achieve a balanced representation on the board, reflecting the diversity of AIA membership including factors such as geography, demographics, and firm size.
