New AIA Trust Executive Director

After eleven years as a valued AIA staff member, Elizabeth Wolverton will leverage her skills, talents, and knowledge of the profession as the new executive director of the AIA Trust beginning in May.

After more than 20 years serving as the AIA Trust executive director, Ann Casso, Honorary AIA, will be retiring from the position on July 1st. Casso had previously served in executive management of three major national associations, including the AIA in the 1980’s.

Wolverton earned both a Master’s in Public Administration with a focus in non-profit organizations and a paralegal certification which will serve her well in this new position. Her previous experience in a healthcare regulatory and risk management setting, as senior manager for AIA Honors & Awards, and most recently as the irector of governance administration for AIA have all served to prepare her for this opportunity.

Wolverton will bring her integrity, diplomacy, planning ability, and collaborative approach to the AIA Trust as she looks forward to upholding and enhancing a strong legacy of offering valuable benefit programs and risk management resources to help architects successfully manage their firms.
