The year has officially begun. The winter may not look like what we are accustomed to, but time is still marching forward, as is planning here at the AIA. With each new calendar year comes some newly elected members of the Board of Director, as well as a new chapter president. This year we welcome Michael McDonnell, AIA to that leadership role. YAF also welcomes new officers and fresh ideas moving forward. And finally, while it may feel like spring recently, Build Pittsburgh is still two months away. Be sure to save the date for Build Pittsburgh 2016 this April 21st. There are sponsorship and exhibitor opportunities still available!
