|Tallahassee, Fla. – On Tuesday, Jan. 14, The Florida Association of the American Institute of Architects (AIA Florida) recognized Richard W. Fawley, AIA, NCARB along with 31 additional individuals as the 2013 AIA Florida Class of Citizen Architects.
AIA Florida leaders gathered at the State Capitol for the ceremony, which was held during the annual AIA Florida Legislative Day.

Gov. Rick Scott also issued a letter of support and congratulations to Fawley for his service.
“I am proud to be recognized as part of the Citizen Architect Class, a distinguished group of professionals who, by their actions advocate for higher living standards, the creation of sustainable environment, quality of life, and the greater good.” Fawley said.
The program was developed by the National AIA to recognize architects that use insights, talents, training and experience to contribute meaningfully, beyond self, to the improvement of the community and human condition.
Fawley has been dedicated to serving the Sarasota/Manatee community for over 30 years. In that time he has volunteered for many local organizations such as Goodwill Manasota and the Manatee Chamber of Commerce. Fawley is currently serving on the Board of Directors for the Manatee Education Foundation, the Lakewood Ranch Community Fund, and the Sarasota Chamber of Commerce as well as several task forces and committees for other local Chambers of Commerce and Economic Development Corporations.
“The Citizen Architect Program is based on the fact that architects do more than just design buildings,” said AIA Florida Executive Vice President, Vicki Long, CAE, Hon. AIA Florida.”Architects are embedded in the foundation of their communities where they promote better design for better living.”
The Florida Association of the American Institute of Architects, headquartered in Tallahassee, represents the interests of more than 3,400 members in Florida. Members adhere to a code of ethics and professional conduct that assures the client, the public, and colleagues of an AIA-member architect’s dedication to the highest standards in professional practice.
