MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT FRANK VISCONTI
The Holidays are here! That was a fast year!
2018 will mark a unique milestone of the 66 year history of this thriving and exemplary Chapter. Starting January, we will all be united as AIA Oregon chapter members. AIA Oregon will be a single 501(c)(6) and allow our chapter to shed its bureaucratic structure. Without the burden of the unnecessary and redundant corporate template, we can focus more directly on our members and programs. Our membership dues will no longer include local chapter fees and we won't have to use Robert's Rules of Order! We will continue our weekly e-newsletter (T@3), monthly presentations and events, design awards, People's Choice awards, continuing education programs, Design Spring, and CoLA.
At the November Chapter Meeting at the Loft at Turtles, the Eugene/Springfield Committee on Local Affairs (CoLA) shared its work from 2018 and its vision for 2019. READ MORE
