38th Annual Asian American Architects and Engineers Dinner 

This year, we are honored to have Elizabeth Chu Richter, the first Asian-American woman elected President of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), delivering an inspirational speech before dinner. Following dinner, we will have a panel discussion on the theme, moderated by Mr. John King, San Francisco Chronicle Architecture Critic. Six prominent Bay Area leaders will be on the panel, including John Rahaim, San Francisco Planning Director; Tilly Chang, Executive Director for the San Francisco County Transportation Authority; Oz Erickson, Chairman of The Emerald Fund; and Matt Field, Chief Operating Officer of TMG Partners. We are confirming the participation of two prominent tech company CEOs as panelists.

Downtown San Francisco has changed profoundly over the past few years and these changes will continue. The changes are both physical and demographic. We have seen a long list of impressive new buildings already built, under construction, and proposed. They have not only changed our skyline, but also the street-level uses. The recent movement of tech companies and millennials to Downtown San Francisco has brought fundamental lifestyle changes  to the City: many residential buildings; higher density buildings at transit nodes; walkable and vibrant neighborhood commercial streets; ample ground floor retail; and pedestrian- and bike-friendly streets. Please come and listen to what San Francisco leaders have to say.
