Previous Honorary AIANH Members


2020 Honorary Member

AIA New Hampshire awarded Honorary Membership this year to Dorothy (Digit) Taylor.  Digit has served as executive director of New Hampshire Land and Community Investment Program (LCHIP) since 2010.  LCHIP was founded in 2000 with a mission to preserve buildings, structures, districts, and sites with local, state, or national significance, as well as promote the conservation of land and cultural resources.  They do so by awarding annual grants for both historic resources and natural resources.  

The board of directors bestowed membership to Digit at a Zoom meeting this spring when in-person events were cancelled due to the pandemic.
