Why did you join AIA Seattle?
Several years ago I became involved in the Small Practice and Residential Committee (SPARC). The community I found there has been a source of education, mentorship, and inspiration for me ever since. Membership in AIA Seattle became the next step in demonstrating my commitment to that group and the larger initiatives the AIA seeks to implement.
WHAT ARE YOUR IDEAS FOR AIA SEATTLE IN THE COMING YEARS?
- Continuing to explore how our imperatives of Housing, Climate & Equity can permeate even further into our organization and, by extension, the profession.
- Continuing to promote & support cross-committee collaboration.
- Supporting the future of our profession through mentorship & career development at all levels of the education pipeline.
