Kristen Nyht, AIA, AICP,
President Message
It’s summer! Time for cookouts and beaches, fireworks and festivals. I took a vacation this month with my family to the East Coast for a week at the beach; it has been years since I’ve had a vacation like that. I purposely left all work behind – no laptop, no reading work email. My phone did not forward calls from my office. I truly took the week off and unplugged. It was heaven!  Read More

Happy August to all of our Michigan members!
Summer is here, the rain has taken a break and the sun is out – what is there to complain about! I hope that all of you are enjoying your summer to the fullest, and furthermore, hope to see many of you at the upcoming Mid Summer Conference at the beautiful Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. As I am sure many of you are outdoors enjoying this weather – as alluded to in Kristen’s letter – so I will keep our correspondence short and sweet!  Read More
