Ronald E. Bogle

Nearly three years ago Ron Bogle was named the seventh president of the American Architectural Foundation (AAF). With the appointment, Bogle brought to the position, a career-long commitment to public service and his lifelong passion for community development, civic engagement, education, art and architecture.

Today, Bogle continues to be an innovative leader. His professional interests include the impact of local community design choices and processes on community development, urban neighborhood revitalization, civic engagement, quality of life and governance systems in educational institutions and municipalities.

At AAF, Bogle’s efforts are squarely focused on creating and sustaining supporting programs to identify best practices for the design of livable communities across the country. Currently, he is directing the development of a national program to provide resources to local community leaders engaged in the K-12 school facility design and construction processes.

In association with the National Endowment for the Arts and the U.S. Conference of Mayors, Bogle is a managing partner for the Mayors’ Institute on City Design. He is highly regarded as a gifted public speaker, a talented musician, and a natural leader. He received his undergraduate degree in Fine Arts from Baker University in Baldwin, Kansas, and his MS in Counseling Psychology at the University of Kansas. He and his spouse have two children.
