Each year, AIA Kansas hosts a gathering place for multidisciplinary discourse and discovery, bringing together thought leaders in architecture and design from around the region and beyond to learn and explore together. This year’s conference will offer a diverse range of continuing education sessions and programming on the issues and opportunities that position architects and allied professionals to improve communities through design work. Notable sessions highlighting community engagement and celebrating community-focused design will feature upcoming 2019 President of the Institute, Bill Bates, FAIA; Anne Marie Duvall Decker, FAIA; and a continuing education session track specifically focused on community engagement, leadership and design.

We invite all architects, allied professionals, community leaders, business community members, and policymakers to join us in a diverse mix of educational programs, workshops, and networking events.

Come strengthen and grow your community by connecting with professionals and leaders from all disciplines.  We hope you will join us!
