Affiliate Sponsored Chapter Event
– The Annual Affiliate’s event began as a way for AIA Affiliate Members to support local architects and their customers while marketing their companies and products at the same time. In its history, the Affiliate Board and its members have been a very active and strong group within AIA in the Phoenix Metro area. Through their own initiative, AIA Affiliate members have created an event where they provide the evening’s speaker at a less traditional chapter meeting, supplemented the cost for architects to attend, and designed an environment for affiliates and architects to interact. Click here for information on becoming a sponsor.

Phoenix Metro Affiliate Lunch – The next meeting will be held on November 4, 2010 from 12pm to 1pm in the AIA Arizona office. RSVP to Diana Smith.
