As we enter Spring, all kinds of new activities are popping up around the AIA Columbus office. And, there is plenty of room for your volunteer support of the Chapter’s new endeavors.
Most of you are aware that the chapter board of directors has taken action towards the creation of a new Center for Architecture. As a part of this process, there are several task forces working towards the goal of a new, fully functioning Center for Architecture. Believe me, this endeavor is going to take some time, and it will take the support of many of you as volunteers as well.
