Awards and Recognitions

"The first time I had the pleasure of meeting Bruce was at an AIA National Board meeting. I knew immediately from my first conversation with him that Bruce is an extraordinary, caring and passionate person and an architect who’s devoted to our profession and the AIA. His leadership qualities and integrity are boundless, caring and dedicated to the advancement of the Institute for the betterment of our profession. I had the pleasure of participating on the AIA Strategic Planning Task Force, which Bruce chaired. His leadership abilities and knowledge of the Institute’s inner workings were evident as he guided this most difficult mission of delivering an updated strategic plan to the membership, while making it enjoyable. Therefore, it is my privilege and honor to endorse Bruce Sekanick, FAIA, for 2020 First Vice President/2021 President-elect.”
