Alix Calon Brings Professional Conference to UCM to Benefit Students
Reaching beyond the classroom and exploring future careers is important to Alix Calon. Last year, as a junior CADD student at UCM, she served as president of the UCM chapter of the American Institute of Building Design, but she wanted to do more to connect with the national chapter of the organization.
Alix organized a local conference to bring industry professionals and UCM students together. She collaborated with Steve Mickley, AIBD executive director, on major industry topics in the area of design and build. She contacted and coordinated speakers for the event, the location, and catering, along with travel and hotel accommodations, promotion and registration. The first annual Design and Build Day at UCM was a success.
As a result of her hard work and vision, Alix was named the first AIBD Design Student of the Year, and UCM's chapter of AIBD was named the Student Chapter of the Year.
Alix is serving again this year as president of the student chapter. She currently is planning the next conference, and she already has ideas for expanding student opportunities through networking.
"For students interested in residential work, this organization has a lot to offer," Alix said. "There are opportunities for continuing education and certifications. It can be key factor in the futures of our students as they enter the field of residential design."
For her vision in reaching beyond the classroom to provide students with career opportunities, Alix Calon exemplifies future-focused learning.
