HOUZZ - Partnering with AIA on a Digital Badging Benefit

What’s the benefit? Houzz highlights the best in the world of residential design and serves as an online platform that helps homeowners, creatives, and design and construction professionals share ideas and collaborate on possible projects.  Homeowners can post photos of their own redesigned rooms to see what others think; design professionals can build their clout and establish thought leadership; and discussions about the ins and outs of design can flourish.  Now, Houzz offers members of the American Institute of Architects a way to better inform homeowners of the architectural resources available to them. Members who have a profile on Houzz can display their experience, qualifications, education, and association memberships using the site’s badge program.

Upcoming Meetings & Events

July 28 - Your Input Needed on 2012 (IRC) Codes

Register Online for July 28: The State Building Code Council (SBCC) is mandated by the State Legislature to review the new model building codes every three years and to adopt a new model code for the state no less frequently than every six years.  Since the changes between the ’06 ICC Series and the ’09 codes were small, the SBCC decided to skip the ’09 codes and move directly to the ’12 codes. 
The State Building Code Council has designated AIA to gather input from the local professionals
on any changes to the ’12 IRC codes that are needed.  Several meetings are scheduled for June and July on Mondays, 12:00pm at the AIA Honolulu Center for Architecture.
