2017 AIA New Orleans Board


To all of the members who joined us for our 2016 Annual Membership Meeting last Thursday, THANK YOU! We had the largest member attendance in over five years. This is not only important for keeping you all informed, but it also shows us that you are invested in the future of our Chapter. We were able update the membership with the challenges and successes of 2016 as well as highlight our momentum forward into 2017!


To all of the candidates that ran for a position on the 2017 AIA Board, we thank you for putting yourselves in the spotlight in front of other leaders in our community. Regardless of the results of the election, your running proved to our membership that we are stronger than ever. We look forward to working with all of you over the course of 2017 and beyond!


We would also like to thank Horizon Tile once again for sponsoring the Annual Meeting After Party!
