Dear AIA Charleston Members, Allied Members and Sponsors,
On behalf of our Board of Directors, I would like to wish you all a belated Happy New Year! 2017 is already off to great start and we are looking forward to another year of exciting programs and events. Last fall, our Board convened to draft AIA Charleston’s first multi-year strategic plan for 2017-2020. While our section leadership has conducted an annual planning retreat for years, this was the first attempt to draft a multi-year plan for the section. Through this process, we collectively identified four strategic focus areas for the coming years: Member Services, Advocacy, Public Outreach, and Board Operations. Our Board remains committed to providing high quality programming in the form of membership meetings, lectures, and building tours.
Aaron Bowman, AIA
2017 AIA Charleston President
