“Architects possess a unique skill set essential to becoming successful participants and leaders in the community. Among others, these competencies include the critical knowledge areas of: ideation, vision, convening, connecting disparate elements, resource management, creativity, commitment, passion, and the ability to see what is not there yet. Our commitment should be fueled by being dedicated to the principle that we can be positive agents for real and meaningful good in the community.
While these are definite incentives to become engaged, there is often a reluctance to be involved for fear it may foreclose the potential for work in the community. Nothing could be further from the truth. Full disclosure of connections and interests will provide the bridge over that challenge. Honesty and integrity are the foundation on which all relationships are built, and this is especially true where we engage as catalysts for civic initiatives in the community. “ – Judson Kline, FAIA
