We believe leadership education should be accessible for all AIA members. This multi-venue conference model is aimed at leveraging technology to provide that access by producing an engaging mix of presentations and discussions. The goal is to bring the program to you—not only reducing travel and registration costs for participants, but also elevating valuable regional discussions within AIA Components.

Regional venues offer participants a full-day program with up to 6.25 LU/HSW. The Digital Access Pass offers virtual attendees participation in the National Plenary Broadcast and up to 3.25 LU/HSW, including single viewer and group viewing options.


Broadcast live from Washington, DC, the National Plenary Broadcast is offered in four time zones (ET, CT, MT, and PT). For more detailed information about locations, learning objectives, and event schedules see the Regional Venue page.

Using live stream and a web integrated audience engagement platform, we connect four cities and a virtual audience for the National Plenary Broadcast. Spanning all four time zones, the program features both local speakers and national keynotes. Attendees can participate in live Q&A with national speakers during the broadcast.



Leadership training inspires designers to progressively advance into more complex leadership roles within firms and communities. Join the discussion on social media using our Facebook page Center for Civic Leadership and Twitter @AIALeaders. To access the event dialogue, use #AIALI18 or #CitizenArchitect.
