QEA’s Marisa Allen and Lucy Moore have been selected to participate in the 2016-2017 class of the American Institute of Architects DC Chapter’s Christopher Kelley Leadership Development Program (CKLDP).  
Participants were selected by a jury through a nomination process based on proven career success and community involvement. Both Ms. Allen and Ms. Moore represent the finest in a diverse group of professionals with strong potential as future leaders.  

“We are pleased to sponsor the participation of these two professional women and emerging leaders in the CKLD Program with AIA|DC. The program provides an exceptional network of personal and professional support to be leveraged. To date, Marisa and Lucy have exhibited first-rate initiative, unquestionable commitment, and leadership traits within QEA. I am sure they will be valued additions to this year’s class."
