November 7, 2011 – What’s happening this week?

A Monday Minute Testimonial 

We heard from Michigan member John Zito this past week and he shared how the Monday Minute successfully led him to getting published.  

Just an update on one of the AIBD weekly minutes from August 4. There was an inquiry for luxury laundry rooms and we happened to be in design for one at the time. I got a small mention in the article, but hey, it’s definitely good press. Thanks to AIBD for putting it out there. My mention is in the fourth or fifth paragraph. Here is the link:
