Rick is one of 139 AIA members across the country and one of only two in Florida to be elevated to Fellow this year. The new Fellows will be recognized in an investiture ceremony on June 27 at the 2014 National AIA Convention in Chicago. Rick believes that our society values better quality and

Rick founded Bacon Group, Inc. in 1991 and is a mem-
