Last month's Healthcare Building Ideas poll question asked: Are you a member of the AIA?

44.44% – Yes
44.44% – No
11.11% – I’m in the process of joining


Because my degree is in Psychology with only a minor in architecture, AIA would NOT accept me in their organization. However, I'm an Associate Partner in a prestigious International Architectural Firm and enjoying my 36th year with this firm. I attend every AIA COTE event I can. One day the segregationist "little boys club" mentality will end, but most likely not within my life time. The world and major inflexible organizations need to address a more "holistic acceptance" approach to human diversity. I hope sooner, than later.
