Principal Stuart Coppedge Elevated to the AIA College of Fellows

Stuart Fellowship Collage

RTA Architects proudly announces that Principal Stuart Coppedge has been elevated to the prestigious College of Fellows of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), the Institute's highest membership honor. Coppedge and the rest of the 2018 Fellows will be honored at an investiture ceremony during the 2018 AIA Conference on Architecture in June in New York City, NY.

The Fellowship program was developed to recognize those architects who have made a significant contribution to architecture and society, have achieved a standard of excellence in the profession, and who have had a national impact on the profession or the Institute. Only three percent of AIA members earn this distinction. Coppedge was specifically recognized in a category for "architects who have actively, efficiently, and cooperatively led the Institute over a sustained period of time and have gained widespread recognition for the results of their work." After serving as President of first AIA Colorado South and then AIA Colorado, Coppedge was elected to the AIA National Board of Directors, representing the six-state Western Mountain Region from 2012-2014. Most recently, Coppedge was elected to serve as AIA National Treasurer from 2016-2017.

In addition to his AIA leadership roles, Coppedge is extremely active in the Colorado Springs community. He chairs the Downtown Review Board and serves as Board Vice Chair for both the Downtown Partnership and the Atlas Preparatory School. He leads RTA's ongoing work at the Springs Rescue Mission, the Pikes Peak Summit Complex, and the William J. Hybl Sports Medicine and Performance Center at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs.
