meeting space

We believe leadership education should be accessible for all architects and emerging professionals alike. Therefore this new model from the AIA is both technology and member driven, with the core idea of bringing many together to participate in a shared learning experience. While leadership training is not new, the delivery of the content is, and will provide participants an unprecedented chance to connect across time zones through our national and regional venues. We will leverage technology to participate in a national discussion on leadership in architecture.

Please refer to the AIA Leadership Institute website for more information and the address to your selected destination.


The AIA is committed to making meetings and conferences accessible to all to the degree reasonably possible. Please notify us at the time of registration if you have special accessibility needs or specific dietary requirements. Contact email if special arrangements are required.
