President's Message


Happy New Year to our Chapter Members and Affiliates!

Year 2018! Is it just me or does it seem like the Y2K bug scare of New Year’s Day 2000 that created panic in the street because all computers were going to crash and planes were going to fall out of the sky was just a few years ago? Would you believe 18 years ago? Time is flying by at a pace that we have no control over and can do nothing to slow it down. The only thing we can control is what we make of the time that we have.

“Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.”– Dr. Seuss.

Please make plans to join us for the January luncheon, where we will celebrate and honor the past presidents of our chapter. Plan to meet at 11:30 am for an open bar and time to socialize with past presidents, members and affiliates. As the incoming chapter President, I will introduce the incoming Executive Committee, present the financial budget and discuss the chapter’s upcoming events for the year.

I am honored to serve my old, new and future friends in our wonderful profession. I hope every member, associate and affiliate will join me to help make this a great year of valuable moments.

Rick Wendling, AIA President
