Congratulations Tom Mathison!

Congratulations to Tom Mathison, FAIA, REFP, for his receipt of AIA Michigan's Robert F. Hastings Award, an annual award that recognizes an individual’s outstanding contributions to the architectural profession. Recipients are individuals who are committed to improving the urban environment and who have made a significant contribution to the improvement of architecture.

Tom has served in many capacities for AIA Michigan including the National Board of Directors and in 2004 was elected Vice President. During this time, he helped to develop a nationwide strategic plan for issues of education, emerging professionals and diversity. He also represented AIA on the National Board for AIA Students and on the Intern Development Program Coordinating Committee. In 2005, Tom was elevated to the AIA College of Fellows, and received the prestigious Gold Medal from AIA Michigan. He is now on the AIA Practice Academy Advisory Task Group and is involved with NAAB accreditation teams for colleges of architecture across the U.S.

Tom also founded the AIA Michigan Mentoring Network to bring Michigan’s practicing architects together with students at the state’s colleges of architecture at a critical time in their educational careers. The Michigan mentoring model has since been duplicated in other AIA components across the country.

Congratulations, Tom!
