A Little Bit Sketchy!

We were delighted by the record attendance for this year’s annual AIA Mid-Missouri Sketch Crawl.  Twelve AIA Mid-Missouri members, family and friends of all ages braved the cold, windy weather on Saturday, 4/22, starting at 10am.  We want to give a special thanks to AIA Mid Missouri Component Board Member, Nina Hennkens, for helping lead this event for AIA Mid Missouri and thanks to AIA Mid-Missouri President-Elect, Kate Stockton, for increasing our attendance this year with her connections at the University of Missouri Architectural Studies Department.  We were all happy to share our sketches, fellowship and some AIA Mid-Missouri provided appetizers at the downtown, Broadway Brewery after our sketching was complete for the day.  Thanks again to all twelve that attended!

The American Institute of Architects annual convention will be held on June 7-10th, 2023 in San Francisco, California.  We are excited to announce that our 2023 AIA Mid-Missouri delegate to the conference will be active Board Member, Nina Hennkens.  Get involved with AIA Mid-Missouri, get involved with the AIA Mid-Missouri Board and maybe it will be you in a couple years that is financially supported to attend this great National Conference!
