Dear Colleagues,

We ended September and started October with a bang!  The golf tournament proved to be yet another successful event this year, thanks to Jorge Loya, his great golf committee and all the volunteers.  We are appreciative of all our sponsors and players.  We’re already looking forward to next year. 

Thanks to Renee Jimenez for organizing the Design Awards Banquet.  Our head judge and speaker, Bradley Hightower was engaging with his presentation on Courthouses, his humor added to the evening.  We valued his comments regarding the project submissions.  The Chapter congratulates this year’s award winners!

We’re in the midst of Archtober!  Chalk the Block, Lego-Bricks Build-a-Thon and Pecha Kucha Night all took place this past weekend.  I hope you were able to attend and support these events.  Still coming up are various lectures, tours, and events, please make plans to attend.

The Texas Society of Architects Convention is nearing.  Convergence, the 77th Annual Convention and Design Expo will take place on November 3 - 5, 2016 in San Antonio, Texas. We have 19 members attending so far, don't miss out and make plans to attend.
