"We’d like to announce that Suad Mahmuljin, Assoc. AIA is the new Associate Director of the State of Arizona. Thank you to everyone that is bearing with us as we explore new Web 2.0 ways to communicate and connect with one another as we make Arizona the best place to be an Intern-Architect. We have had some fun times and good memories as we weathered the… IDP and ARE changes. Our past Associate Director, Leslie Tom had the opportunity to study through an Information Mangement degree at UC Berkeley to understand the intersection between architecture and technology. Suad who has been quite involved in many events over the last year and graciously has volunteered to step up to continue and create new ideas for the Assoc. AIA group. Please help support him, the group, your journey, and I’m very excited for some of the ideas that are starting to be discussed for this year!"
