Happy Monday!


In case you missed last week's AIA Michigan Operations Update, I have included it again this week (below). 


This week we have posted a new AIA Michigan job opportunity: a Communications and Membership Administrator! If you or someone you know would like a rewarding position with the AIA Michigan team, please forward this e-blast or refer candidates to our Job Board. Our Job Board has been receiving lots of new architectural opportunities this summer so be sure to visit it soon!


If you missed the deadline to register for the Mid Summer Conference, we still have spots available, but the Grand Hotel has very few rooms left! Head to our website and print the registration forms ASAP if you are thinking about attending this popular program.


Registration is currently open for the Green Health Summit and space is limited so please register as soon as possible. 


Have you registered for the Tigers Tailgate on September 12th? Registration is open and the flyer is below for more information. Join us for a delicious tailgate feast at the DAC followed by a great game against the Cleveland Indians! 


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

Taubman College: Call for Collaborators
Taubman College is seeking interested and forward-thinking architectural practices to collaboratively explore new research trajectories in digital fabrication and robotics. We offer a world class FABLAB facility, leading edge faculty and highly motivated and engaged students. Our goal is to leverage these tools and associated knowledge to bridge academic with practice and industry interests from the region. The research group will develop an integrative course that will address emerging questions from practice and better prepare students to operate in a rich and complex professional environment. 

Interested professionals should contact Karl Daubmann, AIA ([email protected]) for more information and to be informed of upcoming meetings to discuss the development of this group.

AIAMI/MAF Speakers Bureau: Call for Presentations
AIA Michigan and the MAF want to get the word out about the benefits architects provide to their communities. To accomplish this we are gathering passionate speakers to create the Speakers Bureau which, in conjunction with our local chapters, will bring exciting, informative presentations to organizations around the state. 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.
