The Architectural Foundation of Nebraska (AFN) and the Lincoln Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA Lincoln) are pleased to announce the 2016 Architect Home Tour to be held from 1:00 PM to 4:30 PM on Sunday, September 18, 2016.
The purpose of the Architect Home Tour is to raise awareness of the role of an architect in the design or redesign of a home. This year's Home Tour features two newly constructed homes and three homes that include renovations and/or additions. You are invited to tour each of these unique and innovative homes and to discover the possibilities afforded to those seeking an architect–designed home.
After a year of study and exploration by the AIA Nebraska Board of Directors, and leadership of AIA Omaha, AIA Lincoln and AIA Western Nebraska, a proposed new structure is being unveiled in accordance with AIA National repositioning. This reorganization helps us streamline, so that we may offer more services and benefits to our members while facilitating additional collaboration between our statewide network of AIA members.
This matter has been discussed and supported by each chapter's (Omaha, Lincoln and Western Nebraska) board of directors. The simplified structure is a decision that was made after input from leaders of Nebraska's local chapters, research from around the country on how other chapters are reorganizing and advice from our legal expert. The result of diverse ideas and challenging questions is a proposed organization that will be stronger at both the State and Local levels, providing a platform for growth that will allow us to lead the nation in providing new and exciting ways to serve our members and represent our profession.
It is time to get down to business; working towards electing Nebraska State Senators that support architects. Decisions that affect our industry are regularly made in the Unicameral. We need your help to build the AIA Nebraska Political Action Committee war chest for this upcoming election, as well as future ones! Your donation affords AIA Nebraska an opportunity to ensure that the issues and initiatives, as well as the candidates who support them are recognized and represented in the Nebraska Legislature. Contribute via PayPal using the "Donate" button on the Political Action Committee page or download the pledge card.
