The Board of Trustees has elected Timothy Johnson to be the next Chairman of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat. He will succeed current Chairman Sang Dae Kim to lead the council and further its mission from October 2011 - October 2013. The official ‘Passing of the Chairman’s Gavel’ ceremony will take place during the CTBUH Seoul Conference, 10-12 October 2011. Tim expressed how he hopes to represent the vision of the CTBUH:
"As a tall building ‘junkie’ I am passionate about tall buildings and city building and will continue to emphasize the urban habitat as a crucial aspect of this organization. As an architect, one of my roles in the design and construction industry is to be the keeper of the vision, a conductor, and catalyst. I believe strongly in the fundamental nature of a multi-disciplinary practice and the value of that basis for the council, and will continue to promote and inspire that among our members."
