From the President's Desk|

2019. What a year! To merely say that serving as 2019 AIA California President has been an honor and a privilege is wildly inadequate. This role has been challenging, exciting, rewarding, and fun. To say that I will miss serving as your President and that I will miss all of you is also a vast understatement.

Going forward, AIA CA is in the more-than-capable leadership of 2020 President, Debra Gerod, FAIA; First Vice President, Brett Dougherty, AIA; and of course Executive Vice President, Nicki Dennis Stephens, Hon. AIA CA. I cannot wait to see what great things they have planned for the coming year and for years to come!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your trust in me over the years and for your continued contributions to the profession and to AIA CA!



P.S. You may have noticed a song reference in each of my 2019 messages From the President’s Desk, and even if you didn’t, I am leaving you with the Spotify playlist that inspired each of my messages this year. Enjoy!
