Fellow AIA Members,

It is hard to believe Thanksgiving was last week. For many, holiday plans were in flux. This is our year. The impact on our firms is similar as we adjust, recalibrate, full speed ahead, wait, pause, adjust, recalibrate, and repeat. For the most part it has meant that things are moving slower. This has been a year-long exercise in patience. Some firms have been able to stay busy, others have had a difficult year and faced hard situations and made difficult decisions. The pandemic’s impact has resulted in the reduction of 15,000 jobs in architecture firms nationwide this year. Next year looks like it could be a slow climb back to full employment. The good news on a Covid -19 vaccine is promising and could offer relief from the significant health and economic challenges that our society and economy continue to experience. The next three months should be telling. Read More
