     Do you live in the DMV? Were you unable to attend the recent Lunchtime Learning presentation at the AIA|DC District Architecture Center on preserving the Washington Monument post-August 2011 earthquake? Did you register only to learn that the event was full and there would not be a waiting list? Or maybe you never even heard about it because you aren't on the AIA|DC mailing list (shame on you!)!  No matter, you are in luck. Connie Lai, Historic Preservation Manager for Grunley Construction, is an APT DC member and she has graciously agreed to give the presentation again for our chapter. See below for full details regarding the event.
