Bruce Sekanick, FAIA
 

Leadership and Experience

"AIA is woven into Bruce’s DNA. I have collaborated with Bruce for many years during his local, state, regional and national AIA service. I do not know of anyone who is more dedicated to AIA or more hard working and passionate about our profession. Through his breadth of experience, he understands the challenges and opportunities facing small and large chapters at all levels of the AIA. As a firm principal, he appreciates the challenges of growing a vibrant practice. As a mentor he is a persuasive advocate for our next generation of leaders. I strongly recommend him for 2020 First Vice President/2021 President-elect.”
