Guest Alert by Kim Davies ALLENE LEWIS One thing I know for sure: the weather will be warmer when we gather in Ottawa this September than it was during the mid-year Board meeting last February. It was the first time since I was a child growing up in Rhode Island that I had been able to walk on snowy sidewalks on which the snow was not icy, gray or slushy, but instead crunched underfoot. As cold as it was, we were treated to very warm and gracious Northern hospitality. Thank you Guy and Samia! Plans are well underway for the 2007 guest program. Part of the “agenda” at the February meeting was to sample the various culinary treats that await our arrival in September.

Board of Directors Mid-Year Meeting by Guy Larocque KIMBERLY DAVIES It was my pleasure to host members of the IAMFA Board of Directors— Jim Moisson, Richard Kowalczyk, Dan Davies and John de Lucy—in Ottawa this past February for our mid-year meeting. The opportunity for us to meet face to face in the city where the annual conference will be held that fall is the best way for Board members to get firsthand accounts of the progress of the conference organizing committee, and to actually get a feel for what lies in store for delegates. In addition to taking care of the usual business of reporting and holding dis- cussions on all IAMFA activities, the Board members and some of their guests were able to visit the museums Board meets with Conference Planning Committee at the National Gallery of Canada.

That evening, Black & McDonald, one of the most generous sponsors of this year’s con- ference, graciously invited the Board members to attend the closing dinner of their annual Facility Managers General Meeting at the Canadian War Museum, where they were able to share information and have interesting discussions regarding our industry. Ian MacLean graciously hosted tours of the Canada Science and Technology Museum and the Canada Aviation Museum, which both promise to be Grand Hall at the Canadian Museum of Civilization, where the Gala Dinner will be held to very interesting and informative venues close this year’s Conference. for the delegates.

The day, they have campuses in both Nob Hill home burned in the 1906 other half picked up and began again San Francisco and Oakland. One of the things that first strikesJOE BRENNAN you upon entering the main building is the openness, light and warmth of the space. The openness results from the high-bay, 90-foot [27-meter] span the arch construction provides, as well as the chosen layout of a town square or central piazza. Light floods in from the massive north-facing window wall, skylights and the glass west end which comprises the entry. In other areas, there are extensive skylights and appro- priate light installation. The warmth comes from the building’s unique and economical solar collection/storage system and radiant slab floor system, which together are capable of heating the facility all year with no fuel costs. : The College’s philosophy dictated the layout, which is as open and versa- tile as possible. It is a philosophy based on a notion of space held in an untitled or nomadic trust for all users.
