RSVP for the Member Appreciation Party

Chapter Members: We REALLY do need your RSVPs for the Member Appreciation Party on Wednesday , October 24th. Please let us know whether or not you plan to attend.

Your RSVPs (yes and no) help us make accurate counts for the caterer, keeping food waste to a minimum and ensuring we don't pay for more than we need. The sooner you let us know, the better. (It's very GREEN to rsvp--no waste!)

This year we're breaking tradition and not having a Holiday Party in December. Don't miss the Member Party of the Year! It's free for chapter members and only $35 for guests. What a bargain!All chapter members should have received an invitation to the October 24, 2007 Member Appreciation Party and Annual Business Meeting. If you haven't, or if you have yet to respond, please click here.

This year's Member Appreciation Party and Annual Business Meeting is all about elegant fun. We'll be at the top of Barrows Hall in the Lipman Room, enjoying some of the best views in the Bay Area. (Pray for clear skies!)

For the business portion of the meeting, we'll be presenting awards and recognition, in addition to electing the new members of the 2008 Board of Directors. The candidates are:

Vice President/President-Elect: Phil Erickson, AIA
Director: Tim Craig, AIA
Director: Catherine Roha, AIA
Associate Director: Stacy Webb, Assoc. AIA
Student Director: Jairo Guadian, AIAS

Their photos, biographies and statements will be posted online by Friday of this week and will be featured in next week's Update.About the Party Entertainment:Based on the rave reviews from the Design Awards Reception, we are bringing back Joshua Charles, a really fine local caterer. Thanks to owner Josh Feinbloom, who happens to be "in the family" (He's Gordon Chong, FAIA's son-in-law) and extends the chapter a lot of flexibility and in-kind support.
Check out his website!

And definitely bring your dancing shoes. One of the West Coast's best swing bands, Stompy Jones, will be stirring things up--brush up on your lindy hop!
