I am looking forward to visiting Chapters in South Australia, Western Australia and Queensland over the coming weeks. I will have a chance to speak to staff in person as well as attend some Chapter councils and events. This will be an opportunity for me to get a very real sense of how the Institute’s recent changes have impacted at a local level, as well as discussing the positive signs of progress and near-term improvements the organisation is making.
How Soon is Now is only six weeks away. Our National events team and the Creative Directors are deep into their work for this year’s Conference, which is, as you know, held in Adelaide this year. We have recently announced some new speakers, the seminar program is finalised and the fringe program is locked in. Be sure to visit the website for details.
In addition, we are hosting the Achievement in Architecture Awards during Conference this year – for the very first time. We think this is a great way to open up the event to the wider membership and profession, a great context in which to celebrate the contribution that colleagues and peers have made to the profession of architecture.
