From Douglas : “I am self-employed and work as a consultant to Architects, Engineers, facility managers, and manufacturers on Autodesk software, primarily Revit. I stepped out of active architectural design 5 years ago to start my own consulting business, but I still actively participate in architectural functions and training. “

We wish Sarah the best as she completes her education and we look forward to following her career!
A very heartfelt thank you to everyone who helped out our less fortunate neighbors by bringing in some canned good this summer for our can drive.
Sad however, that with a Chapter of 60 members and 20 affiliates that we only saw a handful of individuals reach into their cabinets and grab a couple cans on their way to a free lunch. Thankfully, the Chapter picked up the slack and provided the bulk of the donation.
Thanks to Jim Bray, Buddy Floyd, Steve Stone, Nic Gray and Louis Tooker for helping bring all of the booty down to All Saints Episcopal!

A small but mighty group of 7 volunteers came out on an eventually downpour-y Saturday to help out McKemie Place in Mobile. McKemie Place is the area’s only homeless shelter serving exclusively single women. They had a need for time and materials to help build out a pair of large storage closets and shelving, along with painting and a few other tasks.
Kudos to Nic Gray, Louis Tooker, Jim Bray, Brad Christensen, Kristina Stone, Lora Michael and Steve Stone for coming out and lending a hand. The chapter donated the materials and the folks at McKemie couldn’t have been more gracious as hosts.
the executive committee apologizes to the
three four people who regularly check aiamobile.org for our lack of content lately. the password to the website was stolen by gypsies and had to be recovered through shady means. moving forward, we promise to get back to our normal boring posts that shall be uploaded on our usual sporadic schedules.
Kudos to everyone who came out last year to pitch on on the various service projects. For its efforts, the Chapter was nominated and called out for outstanding service by HandsOn South Alabama. Fine work to all. More service projects to come in 2013 for sure.
