Hello Everyone

I hope this past Memorial Day weekend has provided a healthy and fun respite from all the hard work we’ve been doing during this pandemic. Looking forward AIA Michigan has much to offer its members. September and October are now looking like a panacea (I’ve have never used that word in a written sentence before) of opportunities for reconnecting with everyone we have been missing for the last two to three months. Consider marking your calendars for the following events .

AIA Michigan has moved its honor awards from June to September 18, to be held at the Masonic Temple in Detroit. The Michigan Historic Preservation Network has also moved their annual conference to be held in Kalamazoo from September 20-23. The annual Design Retreat is still considered a go on September 11-12, as is the annual leadership conference in Holland October 15-16.  Read More

Happy June to all of our Michigan AIA Associate Members!

First, I hope that everyone finds themselves happy, safe and healthy as we move into June. The past few months have been trying and unprecedented for all of us. While I am excited to see us move towards a more normalized life – both personally and professionally – I urge all of us to be mindful of what recent events have taught us. Lets us continue to maintain the health and hygiene habits that were stressed during this pandemic, appreciate experiences that we often take for granted, and most importantly, cherish all people – known and unknown to us – that surround us and make-up our community.
