Yesterday and today pointed up to me the fact-of-life we all face — I”m getting old. I had a nice time yesterday working with a colleague on a presentation/conversation we are going to present jointly to our other colleagues at the Architectural Woodwork Institute in early May 2015. The two of us think of this as our gift and legacy to the AWI staff as we begin to step back. It was exciting to be planning a new presentation again, and with such a great partner.

Today I talked with a younger member of the AWI staff. We explored the new “Communities” offering she is building for our AWI Committees and Leadership. What a joy to see the current digital technology being embraced and enhanced for the benefit of the AWI membership.

It’s come time to turn over the running of AWI to that generation. I don’t feel bad about doing that. I feel good.
