  • It is not unusual for DBIA to receive more qualified applicants than available positions on the National Board. However, there are other important ways to contribute to the organization, including as a member of the Design-Build Certification Board (DBCB). The DBCB is the governing body for DBIA’s certification program including the DBIA™, Assoc. DBIA™, and forthcoming DBIA Fellow program. If you meet DBIA’s Board qualifications but are not selected to the DBIA National Board due to the unavailability of an open position, would you like to be considered for the DCBC?

    Serving the industry in a volunteer capacity such as that of a DBIA Board member has rewards beyond those associated with ordinary membership. By giving time, you will help shape the future of your industry. In addition, you will meet people who will expand your thinking and contribute to your professional growth. Serving on DBIA’s Board of Directors is a unique opportunity for professional service. As a “big-tent” organization that brings together owners and all segments of design and construction practitioners, DBIA member volunteers gain direct exposure to multiple viewpoints and perspectives on our ever-changing industry.

    The primary function of the DBIA Board of Directors includes input on policy development and the organization’s general strategic direction. This is accomplished through the ability of all Board members to have a broad outward vision, a clear focus on the overall advancement of the A/E/C industry and a proactive approach to long-term success. In addition to exercising this level of strategic leadership, candidates must agree to other key responsibilities as outlined in the DBIA Board of Directors Charter.
