Ex Chapter Presidents Lorraine King, AIA, Michael Lischer FAIA, and Lester Korsilius, FAIA, meet up in August for a short get together with Josye Utick, AIA - past Vice President (2009).
Although Josye returned to the US before she could take up her presidency, she left the Chapter a legacy in her strong commitment to modern graphics and communications, being – arguably – the first to take the Website and Newsletter seriously as communication tools, as well as being an active, innovative event organiser. We have come – we hope – a long way since her tenure – but she was a prime moderniser.
Josye currently works in Hartford, Connecticut with an ‘international hospitality’ focus, but there is a slight possibility – perhaps at this stage only a desire - that she could return to the UK. We await developments.
