Green Health Summit Update:  The AIA Michigan has just received notice that we have received a Grant from Hanley Wood for the Summit!  This will help the co-chairs Tamara Burns, AIA and Joyce Lee, FAIA and committee continue the good work from this year. 


A special shout out to Amanda Harrell Seyburn, Associate AIA who is our Associate Director on the AIAMI board, and also serves on National, State and Chapter committees.  Amanda was an active participant on the Green Health committee as well as chaired the Flint Chapter's Stair Week press conference.   Check out the stair week press and interviews here. Thank you Amanda!


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 Structural and Building Systems. Breakfast and Lunch is included in the cost.


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!

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".
