Secretary/ Treasurer
Sujendra Mishra, AIA

SACRAMENTO, Calif.—AIA California, the largest state association of architects, held their executive officers elections in November. Sujendra Mishra, AIA was selected to serve as the 2022/23 Secretary Treasurer. He succeeds Robert Murrin, FAIA.

Mishra  is a licensed architect who has held various roles; as Owner representative, a business owner, and, lately as an employee/shareholder for large architecture & engineering firms. After graduating from University of California in Berkeley with a BA major in Architecture, Mishra completed his post-graduate degree in MBA with a minor in project management. He has volunteered as a facility advisor/secretary/treasurer for UCB Theta Xi Alumni Board and Planning Commissioner in San Bruno for 12 years.

When asked about his goals for holding this position, Mishra wrote, “As an individual who has had the opportunity to serve on multiple boards, commissions, alumni association, and leadership taskforces, I believe that I have right balance of soft/technical skills and experience for this role. Architects are agents of change; we design and assist in the execution of changes for our clients and community. I have spent the last 5 years evaluating our business-as-usual protocols with an equity and justice focused lens. To respond to emerging issues, we need to keep an open mind and deliberate how we can proactively advance our profession. With this Secretary/Treasurer role I would like to balance enforcing our by-laws and encouraging the exchange of ideas that help us be a stronger organization that promotes the needs of our diverse membership.
