Our very own Hosam Habib was presented with the Volunteer of the Year Award from The American Institute of Architects Kansas City Chapter last night and we couldn’t be more proud. The award was given for his “outstanding dedication and contribution to the advancement of the AIA Kansas City Chapter” but he didn’t do it alone. Staff members Michael Goslinga and Andrew Cortez pitched in quite a bit of their spare time to help him create an ambitious program.
Hosam, Michael and Andrew worked together to create a 12-part series on healthcare architecture and programming for beginning-level architects. The program included six classroom sessions and six on-site visits to hospitals and laboratories.
Not only did the series sell out, but there was even a waiting list. Feedback from the participants was overwhelmingly positive and there is already planning underway for an intermediate-level series in early 2012, as well as other category-specific series.
The official nomination recognizes Hosam’s dedication, expertise, and enthusiasm – qualities we see in him every day.
