What do you think is the biggest benefit of being a Member of the American Institute of Architects? If I ask 10 different members I’m likely to get 10 different answers.
Given the fact that the 2013 edition of the AIA National Convention is less than two weeks away, let’s take a minute to focus on the idea of connecting.
Through the various components of the AIA there are endless opportunities to connect with your peers; with partner industries; with friends and sponsors. June 20th marks the beginning of the biggest opportunity of the year for us to get together and connect. It’s the time for us to draw together and re-charge, re-ignite and tap into all the indispensable resources that our network has to offer.
I hope you can join us in Denver. I hope you can be there to draw inspiration from Blake Mycoskie, Founder of TOMS. I hope you can reconnect with the core passion of our profession with Cameron Sinclair, Co-Founder of Architecture for Humanity. I hope General Colin Powell will challenge you to take up the role of Leader.
Most of all, I hope that you can go to Denver and connect. Connect with your peers and connect with all the opportunities that come from engaging in a network that has rich resources for Architects in every stage of their careers.
I’ll be there. I hope you’ll seek me out. I’d like to know what you get out of the AIA. I’d like to know where your passion for the the profession lies. Leave me a comment below to let me know if you’ll be in Denver and what you hope to find there.
