"The UIA needs continuity of leadership, to innovate and TO improve. With your other elected leaders, I have led in restoring the UIA to its rightful place as an influential global force, while managing costs. Fees are down by half. We are having great impact. Our membership is growing. The world demands a strong voice, and that requires the closest professional bonds. My promise: elevate the global stature of architecture and engage world leaders. My purpose: unify our profession around the planet, influence world bodies through effective policies and great programmes, and advance architecture. The UIA is the only body of its kind, with a great past and a bright future. Architecture knows no boundaries. We are unified in our purpose: improve human conditions, everywhere, for everyone. As your president, I will provide knowledge, determination, and global leadership."
