AS Hook Addresses 1970 - present
Alfred Samuel Hook's selfless dedication and untiring efforts led to the birth of the RAIA in 1929 and the nurturing of it during its first difficult 16 years of life. In 1970 the AS Hook Memorial Address was born and is traditionally delivered each year by the RAIA Gold Medallist.
