President's Message from Mary Glowacki, AIA
The year 2020 has been a very unusual year to say the least. In January, I hosted the AIA Ohio Board of Directors’ meeting at the Black Swamp Curling Center in Bowling Green. That was the first and last time that the board met in person for the entire year.  

Government Affairs Update
AIA Ohio Government Affairs
The Ohio General Assembly will begin anew in January, 2021 with continued Republican majorities in both the House and Senate, as a result of the November 3, 2020 General Election.

In a year where everything is different, AIA Ohio presented its 2020 Awards Program in a way we never had before – virtually!  
AIA Ohio Foundation: Contributing to the Growth of the Profession
As AIA Ohio and the AIA Ohio Foundation wind down our work for the year, we can look back on this year as one of the strangest that any of us will remember. With schedules and plans quickly amended, or discarded, 2020 will in many ways be the year that wasn’t. All of us have had to change the way we do things, and, in the long run, that may not be a bad thing.
AIA Awards - Expanding Your Recognition
Each year, AIA Ohio and our local chapters provide a variety of opportunities for recognition in both design and member service. With these state and local awards leading the way, our members and firms have a number of ways to be recognized for their work. Although there are several national programs that are well known to members, the process for submitting for these awards are sometimes a little less apparent.
