Each year, regional conferences take place annually in the Northeast, South, Midwest, and West Quads. These gatherings, known as Quad Conferences, are hosted by local chapters who have been selected to organize the event by their Quad. Themes vary based on the city, local culture, and architectural topic of choice.
Quad Conferences are a terrific way to meet other students in your region, learn about architecture outside of the classrooms and have a lot of fun.
In February 2018, the AIAS Board of Directors elected to bring back the fall quads. You can read more about the decision and the proposed breakdown of regional AIAS events here.
The revised schedule is as follows:
Because of this schedule, the anticipated locations for the fall of 2020 conference will fall to schools in the Midwest and South Quads. The AIAS is currently looking for schools interested in hosting a regional quadrant conference at their university. We are specifically looking for schools in the Midwest and South to bid for the fall of 2020.
The deadline to declare your intent to your Quad Director is November 15, 2019. This serves as the first step in the process and as a means to ensuring your chapter understands the requirements and obligations.
