Closing out the conference, Principal Amy Gilbertson was recognized at the College of Fellows Investiture Ceremony at the AIA Conference on Architecture. Amy was one of 88 AIA members honored at the ceremony, and the only woman to be elevated in Object One – Design, Urban Design or Preservation. Fellowship is the AIA’s highest membership honor, with only 3% of AIA members being recognized with this distinction. Amy’s passion and dedication to the architecture profession is truly an inspiration.
