General Meeting Raises Questions

Many expressed their compliments and appreciation re the general format and program of the April OWA general meeting held at the Berkeley YWCA. Many thanks go to the speaker, Judy Rowe.

Ms. Judith Rowe spoke to us on the planning and programming aspects of her work on a variety of projects, including master planning for the Tracy, California, Civic Center. She also talked about the National Committee of Women in Architecture whose next meeting is in May. She brought to our attention that there are no women on the Board of the AIA. Her presentation generated lively and meaningful discussion and left us with certain questions. Are there any women willing to run for the board? AIA often supports things that OWA does not. Can women change the AIA through active membership?
