The American Institute of Architects, Gulf Coast Chapter; Construction Specifications Institute, Suncoast Chapter; and the Gulf Coast Builders Exchange held a joint social and downtown Sarasota trolley tour on Thursday, Sept. 18. One of the goals of the meeting was to create greater camaraderie between members from the three organizations. The trolley took the groups from the downtown Gator Club past the Ringling Bridge, Golden Gate Point and the new Orion Bank building.
