The 2014 AIA Ohio Convention

The 2014 AIA Ohio Convention

“A Future Practice” 

September 18 – 20, 2014

Kent State University Hotel and Conference Center

Kent, Ohio

AIA Ohio, in collaboration with host chapters AIA Eastern Ohio and AIA Akron will be hosting the 2014 AIA Ohio convention at Kent State University on September 18 – 20, 2014. Working together with members of the profession from throughout Ohio, this years convention will be the first time that AIA Ohio has worked to bring its annual convention to the site of one of the states architectural programs.  

This years theme, “A Future Practice” focuses on careers, business and practice opportunities for those who are just entering the architectural profession as well as long time practicioners looking for ways to change their existing practices.  Centered out of the Kent State Hotel and Conference Center, the convention will focus on the connection of practice to the academy as the profession is redesigned.

As we work to reposition the AIA, we hope that you will plan on joining us this September as we connect Academy and Practice.
