2010 TSA Flowers Award: AIA San Antonio
AIA San Antonio was recently awarded the TSA Award for Excellence in the Promotion of Architecture through the Media in Honor of John G. Glowers Honorary AIA. The award recognizes AIA San Antonio's column "Building San Antonio," which appears in the Real Estate section of the San Antonio Express-News.
The column represents a huge volunteer commitment for the chapter. Christine Vina, Assoc. AIA, has been the driving force in maintaining the column's viability. She is solely responsible for keeping the Express-News editor up-to-date with the chapter's column production and content. A talented writer, Vina provides a final edit before columns are delivered to the paper and often pitches in to fill a gap when a column writer is unavailable. AIA San Antonio has produced 48 columns to date. The chapter will receive the Flowers Award during the TSA Convention in San Antonio in October.
