Foreshoe Attends Grassroots Conference

This week the American Institute of Architects held the AIA GrassrootsLeadership Conference. It is an essential professional development resource for those who want to become better civic and chapter leaders. Over 600 AIA members attended the conference, including Principal Doug Foreshoe from Bergland +Cram.

The AIA Iowa chapter had one scholarship available to an individual AIA Iowa member who holds a three year leadership position (such as directors, section leaders and boards, and committee chairs.) This year the full scholarship to the conference was awarded to Foreshoe. Doug is on the Board of Directors for AIA Iowa, Board of Directors for the Iowa Architectural Foundation, and is also the current President of the AIA Iowa North East Section.

“It was a fantastic opportunity to learn from so many inspiring and motivational leaders in the industry.” said Foreshoe

This year, nationally recognized and International speakers spoke in Detroit about business, entrepreneurship, and bringing the architectural community together to promote sustainable change in community and environmental health. Workshops included: leadership, working with community leaders, engaging communities, communication and team building. Foreshoe will utilize the valuable leadership insight gained from the conference as he continues to work with clients and communities throughout Iowa.
