AIA Arkansas Members,

Hope everyone is staying calm and stress-free (ha!) during the holidays.

I want to let everyone know that Brent Stevenson Associates has a new employee that is helping to fill Joie's enormous shoes. Her name is Jennifer Johnson and she is AWESOME. Jennifer is Brent's new Executive Assistant and office wrangler. She keeps us moving, prioritizes tasks, and reminds us of deadlines coming up. We love her and we know you will too.

We cannot express how much our AIA members mean to Brent Stevenson Associates but we are truly thankful for you all. And we hope everyone spends the holidays with those they love them most.

Until the new year, merry Christmas!

" Someone once told me that time was a predator that stalked us all our lives. But I rather believe that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey, and reminds us to cherish every moment because they'll never come again."
-Capt. Jean-Luc Picard; Star Trek Generations, Paramount Pictures, 1994
Star Trek Generations has become one of my family's go-to movies during the Christmas season. Above is my favorite quote from the movie. As 2015 draws to a close, I believe each of us will look back to reflect upon our time spent, journeys, and cherished moments.
As I look back upon my time spent, journeys, and cherished moments this year serving AIA Arkansas I recall:
  • I enjoyed meeting and becoming better acquainted with the architects and emerging professionals from around the state at the January planning retreat.
  • Attending AIA National Grassroots meeting in Washington, D. C. I was especially impressed meeting with Senator John Boozman and Congressman Steve Womack in their offices on Capitol Hill and talking with them about the issues and challenges facing Arkansas architects.
  • Seeing all of the learning and networking opportunities available for our emerging professionals this year. Kudos to Directors Heather Davis, AIA and Adam Day, AIA. For their leadership. What a great year the E.P.'s had!
  • I thought we had another successful state convention thanks to the hard work by Convention Chair Randy Palculict and his convention committee.
  • Working with the board and convention committee to introduce AIA Arkansas's newest award; The People's Choice Award.  This new award is a great way to bring more public exposure to the works of AIA Arkansas architects. For the first time we introduced on-line voting for awards.
  • It was an honor greeting the newly licensed architects on stage as they received their Milestones at the awards banquet.
  • I am blessed the invocation Thad Kelly presents before the awards banquet meal dressed in his Scottish kilt and attire.
  • I enjoy meeting with our Allied members throughout the year and learning more about the services and products they offer. I always try to thank them for their support of AIA Arkansas.
  • I appreciate Tim Maddox, AIA as he generously stood in for me at meetings in northwest Arkansas. Thank you Tim, I'm looking forward to your turn at bat!
  • I will miss working with the staff of Brent Stevenson Associates. Their quick wit and thoroughness made my job easy and enjoyable.
Thank you for the opportunity and honor to serve you this year. And a special thank you to the officers, directors, section chairs, volunteers, and staff of Brent Stevenson Associates.

May the Force be with you,

Mark O. Cahoon, AIA, LEED AP, BD+C
2015 President

Re-defining Home: Home Today, Home Tomorrow  
This competition challenges architects, designers and allied professionals to create new standards in housing design so people can stay in their home as they travel through various life stages: from entering the workforce and building a family, to discovering new passions after retirement. The goal of the design challenge is to generate universal design solutions and build an attractive, adaptable, and affordable home of the future that speaks to and showcases livability, by promoting both aesthetically- and functionally-appealing designs for better living.
In addition to the monetary awards to be made to three juried winning entries, the first place winning design will be incorporated into a home in Memphis and provide an experiential learning opportunity for the general public . This home will then be offered to a deserving family.
The competition site will launch on December 3and we will start accepting submissions January 20, 2016.
