We have hit the ground running! This past month the TXA to EP committee had the chance to meet and have begun to brain storm ideas to assist in preparations to meet with the state in the coming year. Let’s bring the AIA Texas Convention and Expo to El Paso. If you are a native El Pasoan or have found yourself in the Sun City for many years now, you understand just how much beauty and potential our city has come to offer. Being the western most city in the state, we are often forgotten about. We wanted to remind the board what El Paso has to offer and be able to share it with our fellow architects from all around the state. If you believe you have ideas or would like to contribute to the process, please join our committee, we would love your help!
“Whatever good things we build, end up building us” Although my newsletter is not lengthy this month, I would like to leave you all words of encouragement. Our job as architects is built on many natural talents and the continuous experiences we gain from each project we endeavor. From that, we should always strive to continue educating ourselves on new advances. I encourage you to attend lunch and learns and to keep an eye out for guest speakers around the city. Don’t be afraid to step out of your creative comfort zone with a new idea. Think of our chapter as a human library, our members hold many levels of experience and will gladly lend a hand to one another. Lets continue to make El Paso a sight to see.
