2021 Board of Directors & Executive Leadership
The Los Angeles Forum for Architecture and Urban Design is thrilled to announce its Board of Directors and Executive leadership committee. As we plan 2021 programming, exhibitions, and publications – all of which are made manifest by the multidisciplinary expertise of our Members on the working Board of Directors – we look forward to a year of widened cultural representation and increased engagement addressing the social issues that face Los Angeles. We look forward to continuing our mission to instigate dialogues on design and the built environment and to reflect on what architecture means in our ever-evolving city.
Leading the LAForum this year are Co-Presidents Nina Briggs and Greg Kochanowski, in collaboration with Vice-President Jose Herrasti. We welcome our newest board members Anali Gharakhani, Lauren Dandridge Gaines, Lisa Teasley, Antonio Pacheco, Jayna Zweiman, Luciana Varkulja, and Souris Hong.
We would also like to celebrate our full Board and Executive team, including:
2020 was the final year of service for outgoing board members Mitchell De Jarnett, (Vice-President of Information), Aaron Neubert, Anthony Fontenot, Aaron Vaden-Youmans, and Katrin Terstegen. We thank them for their years of dedication and commitment to LA Forum’s efforts and mission.
And none of this would be possible without LAForum’s Administrative Assistant, Zaira Hernandez.
A special thanks to outgoing President Wendy Gilmartin for her vision and leadership through the momentous, pandemic-dominated 2020 year, and for carrying us through with unparalleled programming and grace.
Cheers to a new era of reconstitutions, solidarities, and celebrations!
