He has also held office with AIA Seattle (President 1991-92) and AIA Washington Council (President).
As a practicing architect, as a principal with Kober-Sclater Architects and later with Sclater Partners, Alan has served developer and corporate clients on retail, office, hotel and mixed-use projects of all sizes, as well as private schools and other institutional projects.

He serves occasionally as an expert witness on cases involving design and construction issues.
His contributions to the architectural profession, the AIA National Codes and Standards Committee, and the AIA National Documents Committee prompted his elevation to the College of Fellows in 1998.
