District Design Society To Host Second Annual Creative Black Tie Gala

Happy Thanksgiving! The turkey has been eaten and the kitchen cleaned, so before I drift off into a food coma, I wanted to take a moment to remember the important things.

Everyone says family and friends, and I certainly wouldn’t leave them out. There are many people who have been loving and supporting of me over the past year, and I am very grateful to have them in my life.

IA|DC: My local AIA chapter has been a great part of my support system since I came to the city. I wasn’t very active when I lived in Raleigh, but a few months after moving to Washington I was introduced to the staff of the D.C. chapter, and it’s been an overwhelmingly positive experience for me. Mary Fitch and her staff – Melody, Abby, Sarah, Beth, and Nichole – have always been extremely kind and friendly to me. It’s obvious how dedicated they are to their work, and to helping their members achieve success. Thanks to all of you for your friendship and support.
