Licensed Architect - Summer 2017 - 6

PRESIDENT'S message
We are seeing great participation in
our webinars covering topics from
Setting Goals and Social Media to
Building Envelope Issues. We hope
you are finding these programs helpful
especially with your busy schedules.

T

his issue contains the 2017
Buyer's Guide with a host
of companies who offer
products and services
for the built environment.
These companies also support
ALA through Affiliate membership,
advertising and/or continuing
education. Please take time to review
the products and services they offer.
The guide is a great resource and
handy reference.
It is exciting to see our chapter
programs doing so well. Our new
Chapter in SW Michigan with
President Michelle Rumsa had a great
program with Matt Brown on the
IECC. Bob Davidson has taken the
helm for the NE Ohio Chapter with a
sold-out meeting on the Ohio Building
Codes. The Minnesota Chapter has
had a couple of great programs on
Accessible Interiors and Real Life
Ethical Dilemmas for Architects.
Thank you to Russ Peterson, Chapter
President of ALA Minnesota for all his
time and efforts. And our Missouri
chapter with new president Robert
Srote kicked off the year with a Frank
Lloyd Wright house tour - also filled
to capacity! Illinois held a miniconference exploring wall systems -
thank you to all who contributed their
time and knowledge!

Mark your calendars for the 2017
Annual Conference on Tuesday,
October 3rd at Drury Lane in
Oakbrook Terrace, IL. The show
is a full-day event with an excellent
selection of educational seminars and
over 80 manufacturers previewing
their products and services. Our
Keynote speaker is Noah Biklen,
Principal at Deborah Berke Partners
(DBP) located in New York City. DBP
designed Cummins Distribution
Headquarters in Indianapolis and a
host of award-winning residential,
commercial and institutional projects.
The fall is even more exciting with
our Design Awards Reception
on Monday, October 2, 2017 at
Drury Lane, the night before the
conference. We are very pleased
to have Anthony J. Costello, Irving
Distinguished Professor Emeritus of
Architecture, Ball State University
as our Emcee. Submit your work
and plan on attending the reception
as well as the conference! Affiliate
Members take note, there are a
limited number of exhibitor booths
still available. Contact the ALA office
to book your booth.
This issue features the work of two
member firms and their outstanding
projects. Take time to read the article
on What Clients Want in residential
and mid-rise to learn the trends our
members are seeing. In addition to
our contributed articles, we have our
regular features on ADA, Insurance,
Firm Management, Second Chances
and a CE article where you can earn
one learning unit in HSW.
Thank you,
