an Unconventional Convention

Dayton, Ohio will host the next AIA Ohio Valley Region Convention on September 15-17, 2011.  The convention will bring together well over 400 architects from Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio for three days of programs and networking.  In addition, we are incorporating an “Unconvention” designed by and for AIA Associate Members and Architects registered less than three years.  The Unconvention will include its own agenda as well as shared educational programs and events that will be integrated into our core convention agenda. This approach has been developed to provide opportunities for more experienced AIA members to interact and learn with (and from) the future leaders of our profession. We are excited about this unique approach and are seeking presentations that will complement this unique collaboration.

Potential focus areas: Sustainability, Longevity of the Profession, Design, Surviving Difficult Times/Practice Management, Infrastructure, Health Care, Schools, Tax Credit/Financing, Community Design and Planning.  Submitters are encouraged to collaborate on programs.  The committee will look favorably on programs that show strong collaboration.

They encourage presentations applicable to one of these focus areas, the Convention Programming Committee will review and consider alternate program submittals.  They plan to offer several programs that meet the AIA Sustainable Design CE requirements and/or USGBC GBCI credit requirements.

Timeline
They ask that proposals are submitted no later than Friday, April 15, 2011.
They will notify submitters by Monday, May 16, 2011.
