AIA recently released footage of the candidates speeches at AIA Grassroots earlier this year. See Belinda’s here.
It seems ages ago that we were visiting, learning and socializing together in New Orleans. Unbelievable that it was only 7 weeks ago.
We are living in unprecedented times – with challenges and restrictions that we don’t usually face.
The AIA national elections have been postponed due to the challenges and restrictions we are all facing at this time. We hear that the elections will likely occur sometime this fall. Electing new leaders is not a priority at this time. Our priorities are with our families, our businesses, our communities, our neighbors, colleagues and our profession…
I have never been more proud to be an AIA member. All across our organization, through components, leadership and throughout our membership, there are countless examples of sharing and encouraging and selflessness. Our organization, the many levels of the AIA, gives us the platform to provide this sharing and help to one another. We are all in this together – and we will get through this together.
Please take care of yourself and those close to you. My hope is that you will be safe and healthy, and that we will all come through these challenges with renewed strength, skills and optimism for the future.
