NOV | 3 | 2010

Dear Alexandra,

The Gadsden Hotel  in 2007, Tubac Golf Resort in 2008, Phoenix Convention Center in 2009, Tempe Transportation Center in 2010….What’s the common thread beyond the fact that all are in Arizona?

Well, for me, all are venues for long-range planning sessions that I have had the opportunity to participate in. This year’s session was attended by members representing all of our chapters and committee chairs. The group met recently in the Tempe Transportation Center.

The meeting was orchestrated by Tina Litteral, Hon. AIA and was facilitated by Brent Davis, Hon. AIA. Following an opening statement from President-Elect Joe Worrall, AIA, we promptly broke into small groups and commenced a distillation process reviewing the language of the previously year’s plan with the intent of adding clarity and providing metrics for future assessment. Working through lunch, we all found ourselves immersed in each group’s mission. The cross pollination of ideas actually yielded an engaging day. The revised plan provides the structure to support programs that will add value and meaning to our membership.

The plan will be posted to the website upon adoption by the AIA Arizona Board.

Kevin Morrow, AIA
2010 AIA Arizona President
