Design Month Advocacy

Green Pastures event with AIA National guest Paul Mendelsohn generated some great conversations about public involvement and provides some insight into what we can bring to our next leadership retreat. We talked about bringing our Advocacy Survey respondents in for a November happy hour to listen to their ideas in person. Michael Cowan offered to help.   Stuart and Michael Hsu have been asked to meet with the City about a cost of services report that could impact the future fee structure for building permits.

Three Levels of Advocacy

National:

Sept 20th at Green Pastures Paul Mendelsohn from AIA National will journey to Texas and present updates on Rebuild & Renew, Regulatory Burdens, and other National Advocacy efforts.  This will be a coming-out party for our local Advocacy committee.  Chair Richard Weiss will review milestones from the past few months and highlight opportunities for member involvement.
