The National Plenary Broadcast is offered in four time zones (ET, CT, MT, and PT). The goal being to bring the content to you. This not only reduces the cost of travel and registration for participants, but also elevates the valuable regional discussions within AIA Components.

Our four Regional Venues located in Nashville, Tennessee; Orlando, Florida; San Francisco, California; and Washington, DC offer participants a full-day program of up to 6.25 CES Learning Units. If you are unable to travel, we also offer Virtual Attendee participation of up to 3.75 CES Learning Units, including single viewer and group viewing options.

We believe leadership education should be accessible for all AIA members, therefore this new conference model is aimed at leveraging technology and member driven programs to bring our organization together. Using live stream and social media, we connect four different cities and a virtual audience to engage in a shared learning experience. Broadcast from Washington, DC in collaboration with our Regional Venues, the program features local and national keynote speakers. Local workshops are hosted by AIA Components, including an engaging mix of presentations and discussions.



Leadership training inspires designers to progressively advance into more complex leadership roles within firms and communities. Participants can participate in live Q&A discussion with our national speakers and are also encouraged to participate using social media using our Facebook page Center for Civic Leadership and Twitter @AIALeaders. To access the event dialogue, use #AIALI18 or #CitizenArchitect.

A detailed program schedule by time zone is coming soon!
