TSA Summer Board Meeting
In July, the TSA Board met in Seattle for its annual retreat. In addition to tackling an agenda that was rich with informative reports and recommendations on which the Board acted, the Board ventured into new territory, spending valuable time learning about and experiencing Seattle’s take on sustainable design and programming.
Directors were also treated to opportunities to network with and learn from several respected Seattle design-community residents. The schedule included a tour of Seattle’s Central Public Library (Rem Koolhaas); a forum with AIA Seattle’s AIA+2030 Professional Series leadership; a sustainable development briefing and tour of the City Municipal Tower; an exchange with Miller|Hull principals Ron Rochom and Norman Strong, FAIA, regarding the firm’s commitment to meeting the 2030 Challenge; a visit to the sustainable development of High Point in West Seattle; and a tour of Mithun’s Seattle office within a restored harbor front pier.
