2019 AIA DETROIT BOARD NOMINEES

Please Join AIA Detroit for our Annual Meeting on Thursday, November 15th, at 6:00pm. The meeting will be held at the WSU Industry Innovation Center, formerly known as NextEnergy. This meeting will include the annual report to the membership on significant accomplishments, events, and programming throughout the past year, and the election of the 2019 AIA Detroit Board of Directors.

We hope you will attend! The Annual Meeting is one of the few times throughout the year that we, as an organization, can reflect on our progress and discuss the future of AIA Detroit with our members. It is an opportunity to see everything that our staff and volunteers have worked so hard on, as well as a chance be face-to-face with AIA Detroit leadership in an intimate setting where questions and feedback can be discussed. We encourage you to RSVP for this free event as we wrap up another successful year at AIA Detroit!

If you cannot make the meeting in person and wish to participate in the election, you must request an absentee ballot by sending your name and AIA Number to elections@aiadetroit.com by November 14th, 2018. Absentee ballots must be completed by 12pm on November 15th, 2018.

Record-Breaking 2018 Celebration welcomes new partners, participants

The 2018 AIA Detroit Honor Awards and the Celebration of Architecture are always the flagship events of the year for our organization, as they are for many of our friends and allied organizations across the AEC and design industries, but this year exceeded all expectations, thanks to a handful of new features, and over a hundred different partner organizations lending their time, money, and expertise to the execution of this momentous one-day gathering.  

Key to the success of this year’s event were a host of new features aimed at providing more opportunities for both industry members and the public to engage with each other, and with the programs and people that make up our community. A new “Industry Lounge” afforded our members, partners, and sponsors more time to network, and after years of fighting against the acoustics of a farmers market shed, Producing Partner Bluewater Technologies made certain that everyone in the Shed (and maybe beyond!) could hear what was going on onstage.

Balancing the enhanced exclusivity of the new Industry Lounge, AIA Detroit embraced inclusiveness and welcomed dozens of collaborating organizations for the first-ever “Industry Exhibit Galleries” at the Celebration of Architecture.  Ticketed attendees and the festival-going public alike were able to stroll freely through the dozens of larger-than-life exhibit banners representing the work of allied organizations across southeast Michigan seeking to improve our built environment. The exhibits also featured our own Honor Awards, the finalists for the first Commerce Design Detroit Awards (winners set to be announced later this month) and other AIA Detroit Committees and programs, like a public engagement exhibit on diversity in the workplace by our Committee on Diversity and Inclusion, and an interactive AR/VR demonstration by our Technology in Architectural Practice Committee with the Detroit-Area BIM User Group (DABUG).
