AIA Utah Hosts Town Hall Meetings
From September 9, 2010 Angle
In August, AIA Utah hosted three town hall meetings with the state’s three members of the U.S. House of Representatives. The first was with Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R-3), a first-term legislator who met with 20 AIA Utah members and others in Provo. Another group met with Congressman Jim Matheson (D-2), followed by a meeting with Congressman Rob Bishop (R-1). The three meetings focused on discussions on the economy, jobs, and other issues impacting the design and construction industry in Utah. During the meeting with Congressman Matheson, the topic of interoperability of BIM came up, leading the Congressman to get excited about a new issue which he plans to follow-up on with the chapter to find solutions to the problem.
