Location: Grand Rapids, Michigan
For the past couple of years, the AIA Grand Rapids board has chosen to honor the long-standing support given by our sponsors with the Distinguished Professional Affiliates Award. Last year, we gave this award to Belden Brick and Supply. This year the board has chosen to give this award to another of our amazing sponsors, Acoustics by Design, for their continued support of the chapter and our events, like tonight.

Founded here in Grand Rapids back in 1962, ABD has gone through a variety of different transformations and leaderships over the last 50-plus years.
