Welcome to the 2017 Midwest Great Lakes Regional Conference! I hope you are as excited as me to learn more about how the lines have been blurred between architecture and education at this year’s event. Don’t miss a minute of the action, as the expert line up of presenters is sure to spark meaningful and thoughtful dialogue between educators, facility directors and designers alike. The planning committee has been busy scheduling events of interest to every attendee, including keynote speakers, breakout sessions, awards and recognition ceremonies, a vendor exhibition and more. I hope we have the chance to connect during the event. I enjoy seeing old friends and meeting new members who may be attending the conference for the first time.
