As the chair of the Innovative Business Models Work Group, Bruce has reported that the efforts of the group this year have built upon similar work of the prior two years which predecessor Bob Cozzarelli, AIA, was involved with. It has focused on architectural business practices, innovation in the profession and prosperity for architects. The results have been well received and are beginning to make an impact with such things as the new “AIA Center for Practice” of which Mr. Turner is on the Advisory Committee. The group hopes the members will begin to see tangible results in 2018.
