The AIA State Conference lineup is set – get ready to IMPACT your world!

I’m pleased to announce that we have an outstanding list of speakers for our AIA State Conference including Bruce Danziger (Arup Engineering) speaking on Innovative Structural Design Technologies, Christian Navar & Derek Leavitt (Modative) on Small Business Success Skills, Darren Petrucci, AIA (Director, The Design School, Arizona State University) on Design Education, John Cary, AIA (President/CEO, Next American City) on Social Impact & Social Sustainability and our keynote speaker is Julie Snow, FAIA, (Julie Snow Architects), and award winner from Minneapolis. Thank you to Patrick Panetta, AIA, AIA Arizona President Elect and State Conference Chairman, for all of your hard work!

At this year’s conference, we’re looking for AIA architects to volunteer to mentor an AIA Associate for the day of the conference. If you are planning to attend the State Conference and would be willing to volunteer to mentor an AIA Associate, please contact the AIA Arizona office. I suspect the experience could be as rewarding for the mentor as well as the mentee.
