AFHA is still hard at work in the English Avenue community! As plans continue to develop, we remain committed to providing support and design assistance for the English Avenue School. Tomorrow morning, Saturday May 19th, volunteers armed with paper, tape measures and flashlights will help us mark another key milestone, the full building measure! We will gather at 9:00 am, split into teams and set out to measure all 40,000 +, yes 40,000 square feet of the building interior and exterior. This is a major step for program development and we are super excited this day has arrived!
In addition to the project milestone, we are also marking an important step for our chapter. The building measure will be our first project that qualifies for IDP credits! Championed by chapter volunteer, Andrew Telker and supported by AFH national, we are now approved to offer architecture students IDP credit hours. You do have to join the AFH chapter network as a paid member so please don’t hesitate to contact us with questions about the new process. You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is super great for our chapter and for the folks that need it. However, AFHA remains come one, come all, architect or not where our volunteers are concerned. We will keep you posted on plenty of volunteer opportunities as we plan for post measure work. For tomorrow, keep your interwebs peeled for progress tweets and pics by following us on twitter @AFHAtlanta!
