The AIA Michigan hotel choice for the Convention is the Atlanta Marriott Marquis. This is also the AIA National Hotel this year. Click HERE for step by step room block information.  Click HERE for the 2015 Convention Website.

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!
