AIA Rebuilding Together!

On Saturday, April 3rd there were 17 members of AIA Phoenix Metro Chapter who volunteered for local community service agency Rebuilding Together to do a service project for an elderly gentleman’s home in West Phoenix (click to see a photo). Led by Diana Smith, AIA Arizona Director of Chapters, the team painted the kitchen and the entire exterior of the home; installed new front door weatherstripping and a new living room ceiling fan. Volunteers from A.R. Mays Construction installed a new bathroom vanity and kitchen countertop.

This is the third year that the AIA Phoenix Metro and Rebuilding Together have worked side by side, and I want to thank all the folks that gave up their Saturday morning to help with this effort.  It was great getting to know some of you, and a pleasure working shoulder-to-shoulder with others who previously I have only known professionally. Personally, I think it’s important for all of us to volunteer in our community, giving back to the city that has been a great place to work for us.

If you weren’t able to be there, or if painting houses isn’t your thing, there are other opportunities to serve with the AIA in the community. Larry Enyart, FAIA, is heading up the effort to recruit architects to be trained to assist in the event of a natural disaster, and I would encourage you to contact the AIA office if you are interested in volunteering, or just get more information.

The AIA Phoenix Metro Architecture Month Home Tour Committee has elected to postpone the 2011 AIA Home Tour until Sunday, October 16th. It seems the stars were just not in alignment this Spring, and it has been difficult securing enough homes to stage what we feel will be a successful tour at the quality our guests have come to expect.

On the positive side, October has great weather, the landscape generally looks terrific and there are fewer competing tours to contend with. This will also allow you, our members, more time to submit potential candidates for the tour and to gain permission from the home owners.

We encourage you to submit potential projects for the tour. It’s a great way to demonstrate the value of hiring an architect and to meet prospective clients in an atmosphere that allows you to be at your best, showing off your own work. We will consider homes in differing locations of the Valley and encourage a variety of styles and building types, from single family and renovations to multi-family properties. We look forward to hearing from you and having an opportunity to showcase your talent and the value AIA Architects bring to the community. Please submit your homes to Diana Smith.

Three cheers for mentors!

There’s only so much you can learn from books and school. In a complex profession such as architecture, the period of apprenticeship that occurs after college is key to rounding out our education, and preparing us for the Architectural Registration Exam (ARE).  In the last decade, the Intern Development Program (IDP) has provided a comprehensive structure to what an architect-in-training should learn. Prior to the IDP, most of us in the profession had to rely on mentoring provided by other architects at the firms where we worked. I can remember two in particular at Cornoyer Hedrick and DFD that provided me with the education I needed to have a successful career.

But what happens after we pass the ARE? We shouldn’t stop learning or we’ll soon find ourselves out of step with the latest technologies, codes, methods, etc. Sadly, most firms don’t have an established mentoring program to continue to bring young architects along. I am so excited that the AIA College of Fellows has agreed to implement a mentorship program which will headed by John Kane, FAIA, and initially presented at the Young Architects Forum meetings. Yet another no-added-cost benefit to being an AIA member.

Even if you fall outside the demographic of the College of Fellows or Young Architects Forum, I would encourage you find a little time to develop a mentoring relationship with a younger architect, and find a more experienced architect to seek the counsel of in those areas of your practice where you need advice or improvement.  In this challenging economy, we should be supporting and encouraging one another, and helping each other avoid costly mistakes.

I like the analogy of the flying fuel tankers filling up other jets in flight so they don’t have to land to re-fuel, they can keep going… In mentoring, sometimes we’re the jets, and sometimes we’re the tankers!

Each month I try to attend the monthly board meetings of the Board of Technical Registration. I have noticed that in the past several months architectural and engineering firms have had disciplinary action taken against them regarding the prompt pay law that was passed several years ago. So, I wanted to remind all of you what the current law says about paying your consultants.

21-128 C 5. Failing to pay a collaborating registered professional within seven calendar days after the registrant receives payment from a client unless specified otherwise contractually between the prime professional and the collaborating registered professional. For the purposes of this paragraph “collaborating registered professional” means a registered professional with whom the prime professional has a contract to perform professional services.

I know that Chip Shay, AIA, Board Chair will elaborate more on this in an upcoming issue of the BTR newsletter, but I wanted to remind you of this statute.

Dear Alexandra,

Greetings! I hope you had a restful holiday and are recharged for the new year. Thank you for honoring me by allowing me to serve as president of AIA Arizona in 2011.

Like many people, I like to start the new year by making a few resolutions. I have learned not to make my goals so momentous that they are overwhelming, but achievable and SMART. S (specific), M (measurable), A (attainable), R (realistic) & T (time specific).
Mine are to get my office organized, improve my skills with SketchUp and read more non-fiction books.

I would encourage you to set some goals and share them with your spouse or a close friend, so that they can provide some encouragement. And if you talk to me, tell me what your goals are and ask me how I’m doing on mine!

Joe Worrall, AIA
2011 AIA Arizona President

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

Beginning this Friday, October 25th, the University of Oklahoma will no longer house your AIA Continuing Education credits. The entire continuing education program will now be housed at AIA National, and we are excited at the possibilities this new program will offer members!

During the past several months, component staff and members have been data testing the new program to ensure the seamless transfer of information, and we are anticipating that the event will proceed without any glitches. That being said, to be safe, we encourage you to print off a copy of your transcript this week. You can do so simply by entering your AIA member number at this link (http://sparky.occe.ou.edu/ouaia/authentication/login.cfm?role=Member&CFID=1332852&CFTOKEN=49862100). Keep this printed copy for back-up.

The complete history of your continuing education credits will be available on the new system after November 15th. We will send you login information at that time. If you have any questions, or if you find that you have any missing CE credits, please contact Diana Smith.

The Really Big Show!
Kevin Morrow Headshot
AIA Arizona’s annual State Conference was held on August 19th at the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass conference center. The general consensus is that the day was a real success. Kudos to the State Conference Committee, led by our President- Elect Joe Worrall,  AIA.
I believe the success was driven by the theme “The Road Ahead,” addressing our futures in the profession. The theme was further reinforced by a diverse group of presentations that demonstrated collaboration among our membership and between our design schools.

Other indicators of the conferences’ success include the attendance of over 200 participants that helped AIA Arizona to meet its sponsorship goals, and a huge trade show by The Reference Library.

Lastly, for me, the success can be found among the non-tangibles of the idea exchange and friendship building that a State Conference provided.

I’m already looking forward to next year’s Really Big Show, and if you want to come to the “Really, Really Big Show,” the Western Mountain Region Conference is around the corner (October 8-9) in Deer Valley, Utah. Don’t miss the early bird rate (deadline September 20). Register here.

Thanks for the opportunity!

Kevin Morrow, AIA

Dear Alexandra,

I want to take this opportunity to thank all of the sponsors for the State Conference, which was last week. We couldn’t have done it without you. I also want to thank all of you that attended.

I have noticed some comments on the evaluation forms that I would like to address. Many of you would like to see this conference held in a more central location, possibly along the light rail, and I wanted to remind you that this is a statewide conference with many members attending from Tucson. Each year I try to pick a location that has easy access from I-10 to be considerate of those making the long trek to the Phoenix Metro area.

Many of you have also requested that the time for the Tradeshow be reduced or have the Tradehow after the keynote speaker. It is difficult to reduce the time for the Tradeshow  because The Reference Library sells that space to the exhibitors and they want plenty of time to chat with all of you. If we did the Tradeshow after the Keynote Speaker, many of you would not enter the Tradeshow and then it is not beneficial for the exhibitors. The revenue from the Tradeshow, along with the sponsorships, helps to reduce the  registration fee that you pay to attend. The Conference Committee will discuss this further at the wrap-up meeting and see what we can do.

Again, thank you for taking the time to speak and/or attend the 2010 State Conference.

Don’t forget the 2010 AIA Arizona Awards Gala is Saturday, September 25th at the Phoenix Art Museum. Watch for your invitation, as they are being mailed this week, or register now by clicking here.

Kevin Morrow Headshot
The 2010 AIA Arizona State Conference will be held at the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass on August 19, 2010. It’s going to be a really big show brought to you by the cast of AIA Arizona and its Conference Committee. “The Road Ahead” will provide a full day of diverse thought on design and practice, starting early in the morning, at 7:00 a.m. (if you want to join us), with the annual business meeting and ending with our Keynote Speaker, Michael Maltzan, FAIA. In between will be presentations by member authors and two book signings flanked by an update on the Capitol Mall, a case study in sustainable design/practice, a design innovation presentation and the annual trade show by the reference library. (Click here for the full schedule).

Our Southern Arizona Chapter members can catch the tour bus at two locations in Tucson (click here for more information), and we encourage our Grand Canyon Chapter members to carpool to Phoenix for the conference.

Let’s see where it takes us.  Look forward to seeing you there!

Thank you for the opportunity.
