After three years of being on the Member Services Committee of the Victorian Chapter of the Australian Institute of Architects (AIA) I am stepping down to focus on my other commitments at the AIA.
Congratulations to Clare Cousins for being elected as the new chairperson for 2014, and thank you to the current chairperson and long standing committee member Wojciech Pluta, who is also retiring.
Victorian Chapter Practice of Architecture (PoA) Committee
Yesterday I was nominated on the Victorian Chapter Practice of Architecture (PoA) Committee by the Small Practice Forum at the Australian Institute of Architects. The PoA Committee is “essentially a management and editorial committee to (a) identify and prioritise practice issues and (b) select experts, typically outside of the committee, most suitable to write practice notes on the above mentioned issues or action tasks.”
I read this afternoon that Phillip Johnson’s – a well known influential American architect – advise to young architects was to “marry well” … I am still laughing.
