jess passed this letter along. not sure where you can find it online to download, but here's a link to the LA AIA chapter site.


This June, the AIA 2006 National Convention and Expo offers unparalleled opportunities to all that would like to be part of the activities scheduled to more than 30,000 architects that will converge to experience Los Angeles as a center of Architecture and Design.

The Chapter, its Board and Members would like to invite you to be a volunteer and help to show our guests the strength and vitality of the Los Angles design community.

Our volunteers recruiting efforts are challenging and we are confident that we can count on your help to get the volunteers that we need in order to run the chapter events.

We estimate needing approximately 600 volunteers in total – and they will be working in shifts of three hours and thirty minutes time frames on the following events:


JUNE 8, 9, and 10

7:30 AM to 11:00 AM
10:30 AM to 2:00 PM
1:30 PM to 5:00 PM


JUNE 8, 9, 10

10:30 AM to 2:00 PM
1:30 PM to 5:00 PM


5:00 PM to 8:00 PM

All volunteers will get a free entrance to the Expo Floor and an invitation to a terrific post convention volunteer appreciation party – Don’t miss the opportunity to be an ambassador for our city.

Just wanted to tell you your quote by Mrs. Parker is not actually from her. It is by her pal Alexander Woollcott, who said it first, and it actually goes that LA was: "Seven suburbs in search of a city"

Nice blog!

thanks kevin. I've actually heard multiple versions of that quote with multiple attributions, including: "Nineteen suburbs in search of a metropolis." by H.L. Mencken. so I chose the dorothy parker version, since all her bon mots are such gems. remember, if you don't have anything nice to say, come sit next to me. :-)
