At the 2018 Fall Membership Meeting of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Triangle Chapter, Brittany Eaker-Kirkland received the chapter’s Volunteer of the Year Award “…in recognition of [her] outstanding dedication and commitment to furthering the goals of AIA Triangle.” Brittany’s skill and passion for enhancing her community via exceptional service, leadership, and advocacy are consistently evident as she regularly and selflessly dedicates her time to several critical practice areas. Within the last year alone, Brittany has co-chaired the Women In Architecture Task Force, guided the next class of emerging design leaders by facilitating the AIAT Leadership Forum, and organized the Women in Architecture Summer Networking Brunch.

 In recognizing Brittany’s excellence and dedication, Vershaé Hite, Architect at Vines Architecture, said, “Brittany is incredibly easy and a joy to work with. She brings fresh ideas and enthusiasm to everything that she does. She's a wealth of knowledge and brings that knowledge to everything she does to and—as a result—organizes and leads so many successful events. She is truly one of my personal "female architect heroes”!”

Juliette Dolle, Principal at Integrated Design, added, “Brittany has consistently contributed her time and expertise to multiple professional and outreach organizations.  She is a great teammate, an efficient collaborator, dependable and always willing to be involved with all aspects of a volunteer effort, from high level leadership to executing the detailed tasks.” 

We could not have said it any better. Congratulations Brittany—we are proud to work with you each and every day!
