Happy Monday!


AIA National Convention is this week! I will be traveling Wednesday and look forward to seeing many of you in Chicago. If you just registered, mark your calendars for the special AIA Michigan, LTU and UDM Reception hosted at the Harley Ellis Devereaux office in Chicago during the AIA National Convention. If you are attending the convention and would like to join us, please review the flyer and RSVP to! Thank you to Harley Ellis Devereaux and Herman Miller Healthcare for sponsoring what is sure to be a lively event! 


If you were not able to attend the MAF Dumke Fund's "100 Essential Architecture Books" unveiling, there is a detailed event recap available from the Birmingham Eccentric publication here.


We are excited for the Tigers Tailgate on September 12th! We have opened registration early and the flyer is below for more information. Last year was very successful so we have secured even more tickets for what will be 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!

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.

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.
