Last week was the National AIA Convention in New Orleans. What a week! It was great to see many of you there and I know that I didn’t see everyone from Arizona, but we had a great turnout.

One of the highlights was attending the investiture ceremony on Friday and watching Doug Sydnor, FAIA, receive his Fellowship. Photos are available on our Facebook page.

Congratulations again, Doug!
