ArchiPAC Announces the Winners of ArchiPAC Games
By Wendy Perez Young, Manager, Political Action Committee & Compliance
In May, ArchiPAC launched the ArchiPAC Games Campaign and Fundraising Competition to encourage more political involvement. Members of The American Institute of Architects were able to participate in the campaign and fundraising competition through giving or raising donations. There were two awards up for grabs in the fundraising competition – the Gold Cup of Fame (most dollars raised) and Silver Cup of Honor (most members recruited). ArchiPAC is proud to announce ArchiPAC Games Coach Jered Minter, AIA, from Colorado and his team from the Western Mountain Region - Stuart Coppedge, AIA, Ed Vance, AIA, 2012 AIA AZ President Patrick Panetta, AIA, and AIA AZ Executive Vice President Tina Litteral, Hon. AIA.- the winners for both the Gold Cup of Fame and Silver Cup of Honor. During the course of the six month competition they raised $3,700 and recruited 39 members. ArchiPAC Games Coaches Greg Kessler, AIA, and Bill Seider, AIA, who headed the Northwest and Pacific Region team, were in second raising $1,800 and recruiting 22 members. ArchiPAC will recognize all participants and award the winners at the 2013 Grassroots Conference in Washington, DC. Thank you for all your support and for making this campaign a major success!
