3Tice Gold Medal Award | John P. Tice Jr., FAIA, NCARB: AIA AND THE PROFESSION OF ARCHITECTURE:State and RegionalCreated a Model Low-Maintenance, Sustainable Board StructureAs Chair of the Bylaws Committee early in his tenure on the Board of AIA Florida, John was charged with an issue that had continuously consumed and inordinate amount of Board time. The issue: How can the Board fairly represent members from 13 chapters ranging in size for 40 to 600+, especially on controversial issues? Prior to that time, board deliberation recurred annually about the number of Board members allowed from each chapter – primarily focused on the larger chapters. The size of the board was open-ended. John researched the concerns of each chapter and crafted a solution which included formulas for: 1) effective maximum Board size; 2) minimum chapter representation to provide continuity and balance of communication and participation;, 3) annual reallocation of maximum Chapter Board representation based on relative Chapter membership size, and 4) weighted voting system to be used, as needed, that allocates Director voting weight with relative Chapter size in dealing with controversial issues.This solution met the concerns of all chapters and allowed the Board to capture 15-20% more time annually to deliberate on other, more meaningful issues. This system has been used since its creation in 1983 and has been studied as a model by other state components.Catalyst for Bridging between Design and BusinessAs Chairman of AIA Florida’s Practice and Development Committee, John orchestrated a successful, precedent setting conference that focused on the business agenda of architects, entitled “The Art and Science of Making Money in Architecture.” This conference’s agenda began a philosophical shift in the state component’s continuing education programs toward bridging the biases between its design and business-oriented members.TiceIntroductionAIA and the Profession of Architecture:State and Regional
4Tice Gold Medal Award | John P. Tice Jr., FAIA, NCARB: AIA and the Profession of Architecture: State and Regional ContinuedTransformative Reorganization of AIA FloridaFrom 1989 through 1999, John served on AIA Florida’s Executive Committee as Vice President for Professional Services, Vice President for Membership Services, Secretary/Treasurer, Vice President/President-Elect, President, Past President, and Regional Director. His decade long tenure is marked by a comprehensive and systematic reorganization of AIA Florida. The following three organizational outcomes are a direct result of John’s leadership and personal initiative:TiceIntroductionAIA and the Profession of Architecture:State and RegionalInitiated Participatory Visioning: John spearheaded an open visioning process to define a preferred future for our profession upon which to align and drive the programs of the State Association. The resultant Vision, “We are a unified profession that leads the shaping of Florida’s future” provides a constancy of purpose and direction upon which multi-year strategic agendas are focused, implemented, and evaluated. This has resulted in a more unified profession throughout Florida and the Caribbean Region and a better allocation of AIA resources toward long term effectiveness.Strategic Planning around Core Missions: John created a model strategic planning system that a) sustains leadership focus on the Vision and core Missions of the State Association; b) establishes and evolves strategies for realizing core missions; c) develops Annual Plans of Work programs and activities that are outgrowths of thoughtfully evolved strategic agendas; d) incorporates annual refinements, keeping the Association energized and its available resources appropriately focused; and e) communicates the vision-driven leadership agenda throughout the State Association.

Tice Jr., FAIA, NCARB: AIA and the Profession of Architecture: State and Regional ContinuedTransformative Reorganization of AIA Florida ContinuedStrategic Business Planning: John established a strategic business planning system that provides a methodology for aligning the allocation of current and projected financial resources with prioritized operational and strategic agendas. This encourages strategic budgeting with desired ends in mind. This approach has resulted in: a) cost/benefit justification for developing dues and non-dues revenue streams, b) more result (verses activity) driven action plans, c) multi-year (verses annual) mindsets, and d) a focus on developing and maintaining strategic reserves.TiceIntroductionAIA and the Profession of Architecture:State and Regional

Tice Jr., FAIA, NCARB: AIA and the Profession of Architecture: State and Regional ContinuedTiceSelected Additional Outcomes at the State and Regional LevelAs Chair of the Awards and Honors Committee John redirected its focus toward a value to society - oriented criteria to enhance the program’s public awareness impact. As a result, publicity for annual award recipients and the value of their creativity has increased in both regional business publications and local newspapers throughout the state.John provided the initial organizational strategic foundation that ultimately resulted in the privatization of components of The Board of Architecture and Interior Design.John was an initiator of the development of legislation that requires 3 year building system warrantees from developers of multifamily condominiums, ending a repetitive annual assault by the trial bar to require that the design professional warrantee the end product.IntroductionAIA and the Profession of Architecture:State and Regional
7Tice Gold Medal Award | John P. Tice Jr., FAIA, NCARB: AIA and the Profession of Architecture: State and Regional ContinuedSelected Additional Outcomes at the State and Regional Level ContinuedDuring the time between serving as Regional Director and returning to the AIA Florida Board, John played a key role in reenergizing the Northwest Florida Chapter and encouraging a new generation of chapter leadership. During that same time he also continued to be involved behind the scenes at the state level as a mentor and advisor to emerging leadership. In 2009, John developed and implemented the chapter’s first Honors Awards Program to recognize those who have provided extraordinary service to both the profession and their community.In 2006, John was asked by his chapter to represent them once again on the AIA Florida Board beginning in In returning to the Board, John has been an active contributing member on both the Professional Development Commission and the Membership Commission. He was responsible for developing three of the Annual Convention Continuing Education Programs in 2007 and is responsible for the Program on Technologies Breaking the Boundaries of Integrated Project Delivery and Green Design in 2009.In redefining the purpose of The Florida Foundation for Architecture, John advocated the need to sharpen the Foundation’s focus toward a worthy unmet need. He further advocated that this was necessary in order to compete for discretionary contributions with other worthy causes. The resultant Purpose Statement that now drives and aligns the Foundation’s programs and activities is “to advocate the value of architecture to audiences beyond the profession”. With this new clearly focused sense of purpose, the Foundation’s leadership is taking it to unprecedented levels. In 2009 the Foundation Board conducted a strategic planning session. John was asked to develop an implementation plan for the session output. The resultant plan aligns all activities under three key result areas including the new “purpose”. Today, as Foundation Vice President, he guides/advises the Board and committees in developing work plan activities in alignment with “the plan.”TiceIntroductionAIA and the Profession of Architecture:State and Regional

Tice Jr., FAIA, NCARB: AIA and the Profession of Architecture: State and Regional ContinuedSelected Additional Outcomes at the State and Regional Level ContinuedIn 2009 John assumed the role of one of two College of Fellows Regional Representative for the Florida/Caribbean Region. He accepted the challenge to revise/refine the Florida/Caribbean Region’s system to increase the number of qualified nominees and the percentage of nominees elevated. He developed and implemented a system that is unique to the Florida/Caribbean region but utilizes many best practices from other regions around the country. The system is documented and available on the AIA Florida website as a ready resource for interested applicants, sponsors and chapter Fellows Committees throughout our region results were an improvement over the previous year. Future results are forthcoming.TiceIntroductionAIA and the Profession of Architecture:State and Regional

10Tice Gold Medal Award | John P. Tice Jr., FAIA, NCARB: AIA and the Profession of Architecture:NationalAIM DriverAs a national AIA Board Member, John’s long view leadership bent became apparent during his first year when he openly expressed concern for what he perceived as one year agenda-itis and the need for vision-driven strategy as a overlay to the board’s governance model. The following year AIM, Aligning the Institute for the Millennium, was born. This perspective continuously expressed itself in board deliberations during this transformative time for the Institute.TiceIntroductionAIA and the Profession of Architecture:State and RegionalNationalRedefinition of the Profession Framer/DiscipleJohn’s forward thinking and long view perspective earned him an invitation to serve on the Redefinition of the Profession Task Force. As a member of this small but impactful group, he was a significant contributor to envisioning and articulating an elevated and expanded role for architects. This role definition repositions the architectural profession in the marketplace’s transactional food chain and in society. The philosophy upon which it is based was integrated throughout AIA’s strategic plan, AIM. Through his collaborative role in developing and refining this progressive practice concept, John played a leading role in reframing The Architect’s Handbook of Professional Practice as an enabler to transitioning both practitioners and practices into the refined profession. The content, organization, and communication media of the revised Handbook was specifically tailored to serving this newly added purpose.Because of his leadership on the Redefinition of the Profession Task Force, John represented the AIA at the National Conference of the Window and Door Manufacturer’s Association. He shared with the audience the drivers behind the redefinition process, the various roles architects will play in a redefined professional context, and how they can best align themselves as partners with the new architect to be of greater value to the marketplace and to society as a whole. From his presentation, he was subsequently interviewed by Architectural Record and Door and Hardware Magazine. Many of these concepts are now imbedded in the tenets of Integrated Project Delivery and Integrated Practices.

12Tice Gold Medal Award | John P. Tice Jr., FAIA, NCARB: AIA and the Profession of Architecture: National ContinuedRedefinition of the Profession Framer/Disciple ContinuedJohn extended his influence on the redefinition issue to academia, where budding architects are shaped and molded. As a member of NAAB’s Visiting Teams for reaccrediting the schools of architecture at the University of Kansas and Kent State University, he was an outspoken advocate for the redefinition principles. Through discussions with each school’s administrative leadership and faculty and through his written assessment recommendations and comments, he articulated the imperatives driving the evolution of the architect’s role. He further championed the need for academic realignment to support that evolution. His comments included redefinition alignment suggestions tailored to leveraging the unique and relevant strengths of each institution.Federal Agency Liaison Group (FALG) Expander/TransformerJohn’s perspective on governmental affairs and the federal marketplace earned him an invitation to serve on the Institute’s Government Affairs and Advisory Committee (GAAC). Although he was a strong contributor to the deliberations of this committee during a time when its effectiveness catapulted to unprecedented levels, his most significant achievement was the expansion and reframing of the Federal Agency Liaison Group which he chaired from 1998 through 1999.The primary role of the Group when John first joined was to provide and informal communication conduit between the design/procurement heads of five key federal agencies and the Institute. In addition to facilitating informal monthly communication sessions for issues of mutual interest, FALG sponsored and hosted an annual three day event where these five agencies presented emerging approaches to procurement and project delivery as well as their projected programs of work. During John’s first annual meeting as the presiding officer, it became apparent that issues had been raised for several years at this meeting with little, if any, action toward resolution. Change was needed.TiceIntroductionAIA and the Profession of Architecture:State and RegionalNational
13Tice Gold Medal Award | John P. Tice Jr., FAIA, NCARB: AIA and the Profession of Architecture: National ContinuedAgency Liaison Group (FALG) Expander/Transformer ContinuedJohn served as change leader in implementing a process that expanded and transformed this entity into a model result-focused program for the Institute. That process of change began by recognizing that the perceived purpose of the group varied significantly between agency members and Institute members. Because the agency members felt strongly about retaining it as an informal communication channel and annual host event only, a new different entity, the AIA Government Acquisition Policy Council (GAPC) was created. By creating this separate entity, the FALG was allowed to continue in its historic role. However, its membership was expanded to include other federal agencies that procure significant amount of architectural services. The GAPC consisted of private sector architects who are knowledgeable about federal procurement. Its purpose is to evaluate, develop, and advocate policies and positions on procurement, project delivery, and other government contracting issues that represent the unique interests of the architectural profession. As an advisory council to GAAC and the AIA Board of Directors, GAPC functioned as a more flexible structure to maximize member input and participation, while minimizing bureaucracy needed to operate. Furthermore, maximum efficiency in policy review and decision making was enabled by having the AIA representatives to the Council on Federal Procurement and Architectural and Engineering Services (COFPAES) serve on the GAPC.The first year, under John’s leadership, the new FALG and GAPC hit the road running.It developed guidelines in successfully influencing the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ initiative to provide design support services to non-federal agencies. The thrust of the guidelines was to prevent inappropriate competition with qualified private sector service providers.It provided timely analysis and policy-position input to COFPAES in a) revising GSA’s new Professional Supply Service Schedule so that it does not circumvent the federal Brooks A/E Procurement Act and b) opposing the Design Build Institute of America’s push to make “design-build” a separate industry category in the Construction sector of the North American Industry Classification System.TiceIntroductionAIA and the Profession of Architecture:State and RegionalNational

This newly evolved organizational entity served as a model for others throughout the Institute in terms of efficiently, effectively, and collaboratively accomplishing desired results.
15Tice Gold Medal Award | John P. Tice Jr., FAIA, NCARB: AIA and the Profession of Architecture:Community and RegionSelected examples of John Tice’s impact on his community and region over the years are as follows:CO-CHAIR OF ENVISION ESCAROSA: In 1996, John persuaded the leadership of the Chamber that a visioning process is needed to pull together their growing/changing and increasingly fragmented community. He was subsequently asked to co-chair a two county visioning process between Escambia and Santa Rosa County, Florida. This processTiceIntroductionAIA and the Profession of Architecture:State and RegionalNationalCommunity and Regioninvolved numerous stakeholder meetings throughout the Greater Pensacola Metropolitan Statistical Area. It addressed Economic Development, Education, Environment, Infrastructure, Quality of Life, Government, and Private Sector Leadership. Positive outcomes from this effort include improvements in water and air quality throughout the bay area, improved pre-K reading readiness in youth from high poverty census tracts, higher average wages, a peer-enforced litter hotline, and greater trust between elected officials from both counties.

Tice Jr., FAIA, NCARB: AIA and the Profession of Architecture: Community and Region ContinuedCHAIRMAN OF THE PENSACOLA AREA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE: In , John served as Chairman of the Board of the Pensacola Area Chamber of Commerce. During his tenure he orchestrated the development of a multi-year Strategic Plan for the Chamber upon which Annual Programs of Work are derived. This process ended a culture of one-year agenda-itis and enhanced the Chamber’s impact on the community many-fold. He changed the performance incentives for staff to drive new strategy focuses aimed at increasing average wages throughout the community and region. He also aligned for the first time the strategic agendas of the Economic Development Council and the University of West Florida, resulting in keeping more of the region’s talent and youth in the community after graduation.TiceIntroductionAIA and the Profession of Architecture:State and RegionalNationalCommunity and Region

During his tenure he reorganized the committee 1) to recruit qualified exchange students from clubs throughout the district (verses from just three communities), 2) to conduct both long term (1 year) and short term (8 week) exchanges, and 3) multi-location exchanges (verses one) in Australia, Argentina, and Germany. As a result many more young people throughout Northwest Florida, between their sophomore and senior year in high school, are becoming ambassadors of international peace and understanding.DISTRICT GOVERNOR FOR ROTARY INTERNATIONAL DISTRICT 6940: In 2005, John served as the Rotary International Representative (Governor) for 49 clubs and /- members located between Perdido Key and Lake City, Florida. Under his leadership the district implemented a web based District Directory linking all members, clubs, district committees, and leaders – resulting in significantly improving the communication efficiency and effectiveness throughout this geographically large district. He converted the Governor’s Monthly Newsletter from snail mail to , saving significant district dollars while touching more members. His Medal of Honor Awards program catapulted the district’s per member contribution to The Rotary Foundation and its collective club-service effectiveness to unprecedented levels. During his year as Governor, he installed 3 new clubs –from 46 to 49.ROTARY DISTRICT MEMBERSHIP DEVELOPMENT CHAIR: As Membership Development Chair for Rotary District 6940 in 2008, John developed and presented the district’s first Membership Development Strategic Plan ( ). It includes a vision statement, mission statement, key definitions, mission metrics, and mission strategies with assignments and deadlines. He also developed and presented to club-level committee chairs a Club Membership Development Plan Guideline to assist clubs in developing an effective, sustainable, continuously improvable plan that is custom-tailored to each club’s uniqueness. The guideline includes Club Assessment Tools, Membership Retention Planning Process, Membership Recruitment Process, Membership Development Committee Organization and Roles, and Continuous Improvement Guidelines.TiceIntroductionAIA and the Profession of Architecture:State and RegionalNationalCommunity and Region

The outfit was part of an internal presentation to his firm in which Tice aligned the principles of basketball to those of architecture – in both arenas, the only way to be successful is to work together and utilize the talents of the entire team. Tice often references Nash’s ability to bring out the best in his team as a desirable leadership aptitude for his own staff to possess. When Nash is on the court, his team members perform 20% better.
