The 2010 AIA Arizona State Conference will be held at the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass on August 19, 2010. It’s going to be a really big show brought to you by the cast of AIA Arizona and its Conference Committee. “The Road Ahead” will provide a full day of diverse thought on design and practice, starting early in the morning, at 7:00 a.m. (if you want to join us), with the annual business meeting and ending with our Keynote Speaker, Michael Maltzan, FAIA. In between will be presentations by member authors and two book signings flanked by an update on the Capitol Mall, a case study in sustainable design/practice, a design innovation presentation and the annual trade show by the reference library. (Click here for the full schedule).

Our Southern Arizona Chapter members can catch the tour bus at two locations in Tucson (click here for more information), and we encourage our Grand Canyon Chapter members to carpool to Phoenix for the conference.

Let’s see where it takes us.  Look forward to seeing you there!
