WHY DID YOU JOIN AIA SEATTLE?

In my  15 years in Miami, I was part of a great community of architects, interior designers and hospitality clients and friends.  My desire to continue to be involved and grow in the Seattle community led me to the AIA Seattle. I still remember my first visit to the center where I was warmly welcomed by Kimber.
