2013 AIAS Grassroots Leadership Conference
For 28 years the AIAS has been preparing future leaders in architecture through our AIAS Grassroots Leadership Conference. Please join us as we continue with our 28th annual conference July 25-28, 2013 in Alexandria, VA.
Each year the conference brings together chapter leaders, AIAS Freedom By Design program leaders, and other emerging professionals seeking insight and preparation on how to make the most of their year ahead.
This year we will again offer a 3 track program for emerging leaders and graduating students. The tracks will focus on:
How do you run and manage a chapter, hold meetings, keep members engaged, plan for the year, budget, and recruit new members. We're bringing some of the most successful chapter leaders to DC to help train you on their secrets of success. Chapter leaders will walk away with a program guide designed to act as their roadmap for the coming year.
AIAS Freedom By Design Program Orientation
This track will focus on gaining clients, preparing projects and the administration of the program at your chapter level to ensure success. You will also be able to network with other successful AIAS Freedom by Design teams from across the country.
This track is geared towards graduating or soon to be graduating students, but everyone is welcome to attend. If you are in your last two years of school now is the time to take this conference track. We will discuss planning your career search, developing a long range strategy for your overall career development, resume and portfolio reviews, interviewing skills (with a limited number of actual interviews being held during the conference), and accessing the hidden job market.
In addition to the incredible content, the conference also has a number of additional networking opportunities and experience programming.
