As we enter 2012 with renewed optimism and focus, the AIA California Council is putting significant resources into helping the profession communicate, collaborate and learn from one another. Expanding communications efforts to provide useful and relevant content requires a thoughtful and consistent editorial voice, and we are pleased to announce that Tim Culvahouse, FAIA has been named as the AIACC’s Editor. For over ten years, Tim has served as editor of arcCA (Architecture California), the quarterly journal of the AIACC, and with his new role as the editor of all of the AIACC’s communication efforts, members will immediately see an improvement in the quality and value of the content – especially as found online at aiacc.org.
Tim’s experience and ability to connect with fellow practioners, to identify issues relevant to the profession, and to harness the energy of individuals who are interested in a larger dialogue will serve the AIACC well. Tim will expand our efforts to create a network that fosters new ideas, documents creative solutions, and contributes to the collective body of professional knowledge.
