Robert Ivy has made it a priority to communicate the value of design worldwide. Prior to joining the AIA in 2011, Ivy was editor-in-chief of McGraw-Hill’s Architectural Record, which was disseminated worldwide and received numerous awards. Ivy also led the launch of a Mandarin version of Architectural Record. As CEO of AIA, Ivy has expanded its global reach. Seven global chapters of AIA, including new chapters in China and Canada, allow American architects to practice around the world.

Robert Ivy officially received the Lifetime Achievement Award on June 2, 2018, during a Mississippi Institute of Arts and Letters event. He joined a small, distinguished list of Mississippians to ever receive the award, including writer Eudora Welty, actor Morgan Freeman, writer Shelby Foote, artist Walter Anderson, and singer Leontyne Price.
