AIA Ohio Convention 2018 – Call for Presentations

Call for Presentations
AIA Ohio Convention
Oct. 4-6, 2018
Renaissance Hotel
Toledo, Ohio

The AIA Ohio Convention, planned for October 4-6, 2018, will bring together more than 250 architects and allied professionals from across Ohio for three days of programs and activities.  The vibrant city of Toledo will be our host, and it is easily accessible to architects from throughout the region. 
The Programming Sub-Committee of the AIA Ohio Convention Committee is interested in providing a wide range of programs that will appeal to needs of all of the convention attendees. It is the committee’s intention that programs submitted will address the needs of a broad representation of the Institute’s membership and allied professionals. Presenters are asked and encouraged to provide programs that address at least one of the conference tracks. Those programs deemed to address the needs of the widest range of participants will be given the highest consideration.
Thematic Tracks and Example Topics
Technical seminars – Topics include Design, Professional Education, Calls to Action, Planning Tools
Practice Focus or Professional Interest – Topics include Ethics, Community, Education, Civic
Action/Influence/Change/Alter – How we bring change to our communities, environment, profession, etc.
Results/Outcome – The results of our work; Studying completed projects; Learning from our successes/failures; Our impact on the built environment
While we encourage presentations applicable to one of these focus areas, the Convention Program Committee will review and consider alternate program submittals related to the conference theme. All programs should endeavour to obtain health, safety and welfare (HSW) credits as defined by the American Institute of Architects, as they will be given preference over programs that do not qualify for HSW. The committee is also interested in programs that would be eligible for GBCI requirements.
Presentation Formats
Sessions: Sessions are educational presentations, including panel discussions and lectures, and are planned to be presented at the Renaissance Hotel.
Please complete the online Presentation Submission Form with the topic title, abstract and learning objectives, contact information and a brief biography for each presenter. The number of presenters for each program proposal should not exceed three. Refer to the Presentation Submission Guidelines at the beginning of the online form for additional requirements.
