2015 AIA Detroit Board Elections

To:  AIA Detroit Board Nominees
 
This year, the AIA Detroit Board of Directors has formally recognized, agreed to, and documented the direction and methods our Chapter will use to support the Vision of AIA Detroit.  This is not a radical change in direction; rather, it is the result of the work of past Boards and Presidents as we have purposefully and carefully adjusted our course to best support the membership and the profession by
 
• Energizing and supporting our emerging professionals so that they recognize the importance of becoming registered and participating in the AIA.
• Reaching outwards to the broader design community to collaborate and partner with like minds and efforts to spotlight the positive impact design has on the environment.
• Taking action by involving ourselves in key community and civic initiatives that are shaping our city and region.
• Merging the work of committees and Board so that they are mutually supportive.
• Become active and influential participants in the historic changes developing in the City of Detroit.
 
In order to effectively move forward, support and further enhance our stated direction, Board members must be active participants in our initiatives and programs.  If you are willing to commit your time and energy to meet each month as a member of the AIA Detroit Board and to dedicate additional time and energy outside of those Board meetings to actively engage in initiatives and programs, then this is your opportunity.  This is the expectation of all AIA Detroit Board members moving forward.

The Society of Architectural Historians Is Coming To Detroit

The Society of Architectural Historians is a group that resonates fully with the emphasis on placemaking that is key to Michigan’s future because buildings are among the most significant ingredients of “place.” At the recent 2011 Annual Conference in New Orleans, there was buzz about coming to Detroit.  Members already know that the City has magnificent buildings – from early 19th century remnants to stunning Mid-Century Moderns – because they know the auto industry produced wealth unparalleled by any other city of its time. Those influencing the look of Detroit were carmakers shaping American taste and on the cutting-edge of everything from architectural style to materials to color. Other manufacturing cities also produced wealth, but it was one thing to make steel, construct railroad cars, and assemble cash registers, and quite another to be sculpting the American automobile – the direct route to the national psyche with promises of freedom and speed.
