March 16-20, 2020
Dear Members and AIA Michigan Community:

Last week we made the difficult decision to cancel upcoming events for March 2020.  The Health Facilities Conference, in conjunction with the State of Michigan on March 19-20, 2020 has been cancelled. The AESLC Legislative day scheduled for March 17, 2020 has been cancelled and rescheduled for June 2nd.   In making this decision we have taken guidance from the latest information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO), as well as recent statements the Governor of the State of Michigan which recommends we “Cancel or postpone large gatherings, conferences, and sporting events (e.g., greater than 100 people in a shared space)”

National AIA has also cancelled the Conference on Architecture A’20 . They have issued a statement about refunds. If you reserved a room through AIA Michigan, your room has been cancelled. They have set up a FAQ on their website to answer your questions.

In the interest of the health and safety of our staff, visitors, and members, The AIAMI office will remain open remotely for the next two weeks. The main phone will be transferred to cell phones. If you need documents, we will have them shipped to you. In person pick-up will be unavailable. Throughout March and into April, committee, board and task force meetings will continue as planned but instead of in person they will be virtual using WebEx, teleconferencing and screen sharing which will be sent to committees ahead of meetings. We thank you for your patience while we transition to virtual meetings for the next couple of weeks. Please check our website and calendar of events for additional updates.
As the impact of the coronavirus evolves, AIA Michigan will keep our members updated. If you have any concerns, please call or email . We hope you are staying healthy and safe during this difficult time.

AIA MI Executive Director

Best Practice: Employee Benefits. Employee benefits are often defined as compensation paid by an employer to an employee over and above regular salary and wages. Employee benefits come in many shapes and sizes and are an integral part of an overall compensation package offered to employees. Employee benefits are essential in keeping current employees happy and have become an important ingredient to attracting new and highly skilled employees to a firm. Learn More
Board of Architects Revised Administrative Rules . Will go into effect on February 27th. Most of the changes had to do with clarifying the Continuing Education requirements. Please click here to read the Revised Administrative Rules

The revised Michigan Health Facilities Rules became effective Feb 21, 2020 . Any new healthcare construction/renovation submitted after April 1, 2020 to the Health Facilities Engineering Section (HFES) will be reviewed to 2018 Facilities Guidelines Institute guidelines (with some modifications per Michigan amendments that found in the revised Michigan rules).
