include members from six Western Mountain Region states as well as those from four Northwestern states, Alaska, Hawaii, Guam & Micronesia, Hong Kong and Japan.  Conference topics will explore the international trends, influences, and connections that affect the
profession of architecture and it is the desire of the Conference Committee to have a logo that most creatively recognizes and depicts these global realities.

The Logo may contain the following words as well as the graphic interpretation or representation.
