The Michigan Architectural Foundation (MAF) is pleased to announce it has named three new members to its Board of Trustees, effective January 2021. Each will serve a three-year term.
MAF’s new board members are:

Bryan also established NOMA (National Association of Minority Architects) Detroit’s Project Pipeline Architecture Camps, a free program to introduce minority high school students to careers in architecture.

Todd Drouillard, AIA, NCARB. Todd is a Studio Business Leader with HED. He serves as an AIA Student Mentor Program leader for architecture students at the University of Michigan and Lawrence Technological University.
“On behalf of the Michigan Architectural Foundation, we are pleased to welcome Jamie, Todd, and Bryan to the MAF board,” said Tim Casai, FAIA, MAF 2020/2021 President. “Each brings a diverse viewpoint and experience, along with a common exemplary commitment to Michigan architecture, that will greatly support MAF in our mission to advance awareness of architecture’s impact on our lives.”
MAF also wants to thank its outgoing board members Craig Thompson (after a five-year term); and Brandon Kinsey, PA, Hon. Aff. AIAM, and Norman L. Hamann, Jr., AIA, LEED AP (after six-year terms, respectively) for their service to MAF. Each will continue to stay actively involved with MAF going forward, with Craig and Brandon serving on MAF’s ‘Fore a Great Cause’ annual golf outing committee, and Norm, with the MAF+AIA Michigan Internship Bridge Grants Program.
“MAF owes its success and growth to all of the dedicated board members who have served MAF since our inception,” said Tim. “We are grateful to every current and former MAF board member, for the impact they have made on MAF and on those we serve.”
