As President Elect in 2013 I had an exciting year serving the chapter representing us in many local, state and national AIA events. 2013 was the 100 year anniversary of the Dayton flood. As part of the Student Design Program and Architecture Week AIA Dayton integrated this anniversary into our programs. The end of my tenure was stalled with health issues which had me side lined and struggling with attending year-end events. Like the City of Dayton in 1913 I’m recovering and excited to move on and start the New Year!
I’d like to start by thanking Matt Sauer for his amazing leadership and work he did as President this year. I’d also like to thank the current board and membership for supporting my election as the new 2014 President. Many thanks to the board members who remain and the new members to the Board: Secretary - Dianna Conboy, Director – Ed McCall and Associate Director Courtney Moran. I also truly appreciate the staff of AIA Dayton for all they do to make our lives easier.
AIA Dayton is now accepting registrations for the 2014 Student Design Art in Architecture Awards program is the design of an Urban Outfitters Center which is inspired by the plans for the upcoming RiverScape River Run. All college-bound students and their instructors in the Miami Valley area who are interested in art, architecture, or design may participate.

About 80 AIA Dayton, Associated General Contractors of Dayton, Home Builders Association of Dayton, and Dayton Engineers Club Barn Gang members attended the September 24 Dayton Mayoral and City Commission Candidate Forum held at the Dayton Engineers Club.
Both mayoral candidates (Nan Whaley and A.J. Wagner) and the four City Commission candidates (David Esrati, David Greer, Jeffrey Mims Jr., and Joey Williams)were present for the event, which was moderated by Dan Edwards, WDTN – TV news reporter. The forum was presented to bring design and construction professionals together with political candidates to discuss important issues and to allow all of the candidates an opportunity to explain their positions on important policy issues.
