Call for expressions of interest: new committee members

The Australian Institute of Architects WA Chapter is seeking three (3) Editorial Panel members to work alongside Emma Adams as Managing Editor and Jonathan Speer as Editor for the upcoming issue of The Architect magazine to be produced in 2024. We welcome diverse representation on the Panel and invite expressions of interest from all Institute members, including A+ Practice members, EmAGN and SONA.

To ensure diverse representation on the Panel, we particularly invite nominations from EmAGN and SONA members.

We are looking for new Panel members who are passionate about The Architect magazine, first published in 1939, who want to contribute to this important instrument of advocacy for the WA architecture community.

In joining the Panel, you will actively participate in developing and delivering content for The Architect by:

  1. ESTABLISHING THE PRIMARY FOCUS OF THE ISSUE: Developing, with the other Panel members, the direction of each issue of the magazine.
  2. RECRUIT CONTRIBUTORS: Ascertain who will write each of the stories and who will contribute the opinion pieces.
  3. SHORTLIST PROJECTS: Review potential projects for inclusion that will align with the focus of the issue.


The members of this Panel will convene after the 2024 Awards in June to attend a digital, and in person, strategy session to discuss the focus of the next issue and review the timetable for delivering the magazine. The Panel will meet weekly to review progress with communications predominantly via email and Microsoft Teams.


Panel members are expected to be active participants, conduct themselves and participate in an accountable and professional manner, as per the Institute’s Code of Conduct.


Panel members must be members of the Australian Institute of Architects.
