2014 AIA Arkansas State Convention

There’s nothing quite as refreshing both physically and emotionally as a change in seasons…cooler weather, falling leaves and a great deal of football provide a mental change of pace from the sun, fun and stress of a hot summer. Fall also ushers in our annual AIA Arkansas State Convention, scheduled this year for October the 15th through 18th in beautiful Hot Springs National Park.

Travis Bartlett, AIA and his committee have worked hard to produce yet another excellent slate of speakers, Allied presentations, social gatherings, golf, biking, art contests, dinners, and so much more. Highlights include presentations from representatives of BIG (NYC), Fitzsimmons Architects (OKC), Hefft Projects (KC), McKinney York (Austin), Holst Architecture (Portland), and Zoka Zola (Chicago). Another unique highlight this election year are respective addresses from gubernatorial candidates Asa Hutchinson and Mike Ross.

There are more than 25 hours of continuing education and a variety of topics and speakers from which to choose. You will have the opportunity to receive 14 of 18 LUs required for your AIA National requirements, and you can fulfill ALL of your state license renewal requirements in one weekend!

So please, if you haven’t already, plan to join over 600 of your peers on the architectural design community in Hot Springs on October 15 through 18. If you’re anything like me, you’ll leave refreshed, reinvigorated and ready to build a better world. Don’t miss it!
