Wow, we made it through another Archtober, and what a fabulous month it was for the El Paso Chapter AIA! We celebrated throughoutthis time with all things Architecture, from the wildly successful “Chalk the Block” eventthrough the 2015 AIA Design Awards. Kudos to the several of youwho gave of their time and effort for providing for these events, especially Bruno Vasquez (Chalk the Block) and Rene Melendez (Design Awards). We are working toward continuing this momentum by having our Design Award recipients featured on an upcoming“State of the Arts” radio segment; Stay tuned for that!
Although I regret to inform you that personal issues prevented my attendance, our Chapter continued to be well represented at the recent TxA Convention & Design Expo. I’m looking forwarding to hearing about ongoings during this time from those who attended, who need to share their new found knowledge (and maybe some CEUs?) with our members.
Please be advised that, during our next slated meeting, on November 19th, we will be voting for a new TxA Director, to succeed Mr. Carl Daniel, who has performed superbly in that important capacity. The following architects to be considered for this crucial position representing AIAEl Paso are: Mr. Tommy Razloznik and Mr. Nestor Infanzon.
Have you checked the website, www. aiaelpaso.org lately? We continue to develop this important portal with new content and migrating critical information relevant to our profession, and it’s looking good!
As always, I’m humbled by the great support afforded to me through the great leadership in your AIA Executive Committee; they are truly committed in making our organization shine. Thanks.
It’s a great time to be an architect!
Jim Booher, AIA
