The AIA Dallas Small Firm Roundtable focuses on the needs of small firms. It seeks to integrate the existing benefits and services offered by the AIA with small firms in the Dallas area. Our goals are to further their special and unique needs and act as a central body to facilitate growth, understanding, and knowledge.


Collaboration amongst architects and other professionals, disciplines, and crafts people has a significant impact on architectural practices and projects.  Join Ron Wommack as he shares his views on collaboration, then leads a panel as they share their experiences and lessons learned.

Ron established his firm, Ron Wommack Architect, in 1990.  Prior to establishing his own firm, Ron had worked for two of the Southwest’s most recognized and design-oriented firms, The Oglesby Group and Frank Welch Associates.  Projects of Ron Wommack Architect have ranged from the refurbishing of older housing units into viable urban dwellings, the development of new denser housing typologies, and single family residences to corporate office facilities and public / community projects. For this body of work, the firm has received more than twelve American Institute of Architects (AIA) component design awards since 1994 including six Texas Society of Architects and AIA/Dallas Honor Awards. It has also received D-Magazine Home of the Year awards, and awards from Preservation Dallas.  Ron received a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Texas Tech University in 1976.  He currently serves periodically as an adjunct professor at the University of Texas at Arlington and as a visiting studio critic at Texas Tech University.  He was elected to the College of Fellows of the AIA in 2004 and his firm was honored as the 2006 AIA/Dallas Firm of the Year.
