President Message
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!

The weather is beautiful today. It’s actually difficult right now to comprehend what havoc things which are invisible to the naked eye are bringing to our world.

Our firm Diekema Hamann has, like many of you, transitioned from our physical offices a week ago to an almost 100% virtual environment. Having three offices has prepared us and allowed us to work remotely for years but not everyone at the same time. AIA Michigan and our chapters are now required to respond and adapt in much the same way. Read More

Hello all and Happy St. Patrick’s Season to everyone in our AIA MI family:

As the saying goes – there is never a dull moment – and this may be true now more than ever! As I am sure is the case with many of you, COVID-19 has changed the way that we are working – not only in Michigan, but across the country itself. There is no doubt of some uncertainty in the times ahead, but in the words of the English writer Margaret Drabble, “When nothing is sure, anything is possible”. As designers, I hope we are all able to move forward with an optimistic point of view and look for places where this pandemic is able to allow us to innovate and bring us closer together as a people …. But not actually closer together – 6’ apart please! Read More
