Another Year for the History Books
The gala in Detroit and the global, online conference have completed with 1,400 individuals participating in various capacities. From Wednesday’s Legacy project that was more successful than even the most optimistic projections to the final party on Saturday evening with NOMA members, AIA leadership, design students, architecture professors from around the country and a host of friends and family networking, dancing and enjoying catered culinary delights it can be safely said that a good time was had by all. Time and again, however, Mrs. June Campbell, wife of NOMA Founder Wendell Campbell, stole the show. Her speeches – the formal ones on the stage and the casual ones that she had with the other dignitaries and attendees inspired all that heard them. Specific announcements on some of the highlights will begin going out next week so stay tuned.
