Fall continues to be very busy.  Please look over the AIA Michigan calendar.


Some reminders for this week are:


AIAMI Special Meeting will be November 17th at 6:00 pm at Weber's Restaurant and Boutique Hotel, Ann Arbor. Click Here for Full Announcement


Join the Cranbrook Art Museum for Crandemonium on November 1, 2014 and spend "an evening where anything is possible". All proceeds go towards the Museum's education programs benefiting the underserved areas in the region!

The Markitect Seminar scheduled for November 6th with AIAMI and SMPS is currently full with a wait list and will not be accepting any others on the wait list. However, due to popular demand we will keep this list and look into repeating this seminar at a later date.


The next ARE Seminar is scheduled for November 8, 2014 from 8:30a.m to 4:30p.m. We will be discussing Mechanical and Electrical Systems. Breakfast and Lunch is included in the cost.


The Michigan Advanced Lighting Conference is scheduled for November 19, 2014 from 8:00a.m to 6:00p.m. Explore, evaluate and educate yourself on the latest technology, products and services in advanced lighting and controls!


Lastly, please remember that December 11, 2014 is the AIA Michigan Board Transition Meeting followed by the Holiday Open House from 4:00p.m. to 7:00p.m.  Please mark your calendars for this event!


Have a great week and remember to contact me anytime with your ideas or if you would like to join a committee!

AIAMI/MAF Speakers Bureau: Call for Presentations

This is a great opportunity for our members to raise awareness about their firm's work and their passion while advocating for the architectural profession.

Clifford Holforty, AIA, PE Architecture Book Collection Donated by Ralph W. Moxley,AIA, LEED AP

After my father-in-law, Clifford Holforty, passed on, the family was faced with how to manage his extensive architecture book collection. With the intent of finding new homes for most of the 130 architecture books, the family asked that they be donated to architecture schools in Michigan, preferably those schools he had attended, or a public library that would emphasize and display architecture books. They requested that each donated book include a decal inside the front cover that states "Donated by Clifford Holforty, AIA, PE".
