Around the world, designers are coming together to volunteer their time and their talents to solve issues in their own communities. Local chapters of Architecture for Humanity take many forms, depending on the amount and proximity of these designers within its city. Each chapter operates autonomously and engages in their own projects and activities. But, together they form the force that is the Chapter Network.
We are proud to bring you the second issue of our Chapter Quarterly. It acts as a voice of the Chapter Network and a venue for sharing experiences and facilitating an evolving dialogue. This issue focuses on hosting events and forming partnerships around the globe.
You can find the complete publication HERE.
Highlighted within Quarterly, we have the honor of introducing 4 new chapters, welcoming new board members throughout the network and recapping our experience at the AIA National and Dwell on Design Conventions this summer. As well as:
- Why everyone should engage in events
- Why students are important volunteers
- Advise on running design competitions
- A call for an official title
- Chicago's story of hosting interns
- How to use Basecamp for management
- Business plans are taking shape
- Reporting back from the mid-year forum
- Much much more...
Watch out for more to come on Design Like You Give a Damn:LIVE! Nov. 7th - 9th 2013.
This year the Chapter Forum will take place on Saturday Nov. 9th. Following the all day conference, we will host the Forum at our Headquarters building, 695 Minna Street, San Francisco. Programming will soon be finalized, focusing on a panel on Resiliency, various trainings and the review of chapter toolkits and manuals.
A hearty thank you to all the contributors! We look forward to seeing your future article in the December issue.
