A festive and productive annual gathering at Escape Brewery in Redlands California!
On October 11, 2023, the American Institute of Architects Inland California Chapter (AIAIC) celebrated Archtoberfest at Escape Brewery www.escapecraftbrewery.com in Redlands California. This event, aptly named to coincide with the festive time of its namesake Octoberfest, was started over a decade ago by David Higginson, AIA. It has become a yearly tradition and a time for the chapter to elect officers for the coming year and to generally have a great time to network and interact with fellow professionals and allied members. It has now become a national event adopted by numerous chapters across the country.
The American Institute of Architects Inland California Chapter (AIAIC) is a local
organization that represents architects and allied professionals in the Inland Empire.
David Higginson, AIA has been a member for more than two decades.
Their mission statement is:
AIA Inland California Chapter serves the public, the profession, and its members in San Bernardino County and western Riverside County with programs and services to advance the art of architecture and enhance the quality of our environment.
David Higginson (AIA) has served in numerous positions within the chapter for years.
Having been President in 2016, he has been active with the board for more than a decade. With his involvement with the California Architects Board as a Subject Matter Expert, and assisting with the Enforcement Division, he took a break from being active in the Chapter.
He was approached by Chapter leadership to consider bringing his extensive knowledge and background once again to accepting a director position, which he happily agreed to do.
David looks forward to re-engaging once again on the AIAIC Board to help promote and advance the profession of Architecture in the Inland Empire!
