AIA CRA The 15 members of the Custom Residential Architects Network (CRAN) Advisory Group invite you to attend the CRAN Symposium 2017, September 16 through 19 in Miami. The 10th annual gathering of top custom residential architects fol- lows the completely sold-out symposium in Sonoma, Calif., last fall. This year will prove just as exciting and informative, so make your reservation early. The venue is the gorgeous Intercontinental Hotel in downtown Miami. Saturday's program includes an affiliate reception for CRAN chapter leaders to get together and network with their peers. Local CRAN leaders will be able to learn what programs and tours have been suc- cessful in other chapters and hear what's going on at the national level. If you have thoughts about starting a CRAN chapter, come and find out how it is done. Later, a cocktail reception will allow guests to meet other architects and vendors, followed by a fabulous dinner cruise. On Sunday, we'll have the most popu- lar event of the symposium: the home tour. One of the houses confirmed so far is a home designed by Alfred Browning Parker, FAIA, "Miami's maverick modernist." Buses will take attendees to several contemporary and period homes in the Miami area. A stop at the historic Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables for lunch and an informative talk by Allan Shulman, FAIA, are included. On Monday, we delve into the practice of residential architecture. Steve Mouzon, AIA, will be our keynote speaker, fol- lowed by Randolph C. Henning, author of "The Architecture of Alfred Browning Parker;" CRAN Advisory Group member Kevin Harris, FAIA; building science ex- pert Mark LaLiberte; residential architect Marica McKeel, AIA; and small firm expert Rena Klein, FAIA. On Tuesday, we'll wrap up with a panel discussion about rising waters moderated by Shawna Meyer, AIA, senior associate at Kennedy & Violich Architecture and a founding collaborator of aPC Workshop, with panelists Alan Berger, urban design professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Martin Pedersen of the Common Edge Collaborative magazine; and Chris Meyer, AIA, of aPC Work- shop. Next, there will be sessions led by architect Michael Imber, FAIA; business consultants Nicole Lemieux and Jeff Echols; and architect Max Strang, FAIA. Monday and Tuesday evenings feature cocktail parties and our ever-popular net- working dinners with sponsors and other architects. Significant others and friends are encouraged to register for the dinner cruise, the house tour, the cocktail parties, and the networking dinners. Once again, I encourage you to register now to avoid missing the best CRAN symposium yet. Earn 18.5 learning units and have fun!!
