The TSA Board met in Dallas this past weekend for its spring meeting, with guest speaker Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, the Honorable Susan Combs. A transcript of her talk, along with a brief Q & A, will be made available on the TSA Web site soon. Friday's meeting took place at the Dallas Center for Architecture, with a reception immediately following. Members of the AIA Dallas Emerging Leaders Program attended Friday's Board activities. On Saturday, guest speaker Vel Hawes Jr., FAIA, TSA 2008 Lifetime Achievement Medal recipient, gave a presentation on the Dallas Arts District Development.

Susan Combs presented great commentary concerning the position of Texas as it relates to our current national economic condition. Her insights and observations allowed the TSA Board to breath a little easier, with the recognition that challenges lie ahead this year and into 2010. Thank you, Susan, for coming to Dallas on a blustery, rainy Friday to share some of your thoughts with the TSA Board.
