Annual Business Meeting and Awards Ceremony

November 2, 2023


What a great time to be an architect in South Carolina! I know most of us are busier than we’ve even been and at least so far, that doesn’t seem to be slowing down. (Hopefully I didn’t just jinx us all!) While we understand a full workload leaves little room for much else, I would like to invite each of you to join us at our annual business meeting and Design Awards. This year, both events will take place on Thursday, November 2nd in the newly renovated (and now officially open!) South Carolina Center for Architecture in Columbia.

We have an exciting day of events planned, starting with this year’s opening keynote, which will be presented by our Design Awards Jury Chair, Matt Seltzer, AIA. He is a partner at Archimania out of Memphis, TN and will discuss the evolving stereotypes of architecture and architects. Following him, Elaine Gallagher Adams, AIA (who many of us know well) will join us virtually to delve into the Framework for Design Excellence and the AIA 2030 challenge. 

During the business meeting, you will learn more about the work we and all our committees have been doing at AIA SC this year, and you’ll get a sneak peek into some of the exciting exhibits, conferences and celebrations already planned for 2024. 

After the business meeting, we encourage everyone to participate in a series of tours, starting at 522 Lady Street and concluding with visits to three projects at the Bull Street District – The Bakery at Bull Street, Central Energy, West Lawn. 

And finally, before the Design Awards Celebration, there will be a President’s Reception to kick off our evening of recognizing outstanding design work by our members. There are limited tickets for this event in our new space, so be sure to secure yours today. 

This will be the first membership-wide event in our “new” space, and I hope you will make time to join us, reconnect with colleagues from all over the state and celebrate this significant milestone.
