The World is in flux

From how and where you work to what your clients are asking of you to how the architectural profession in California will look in the next 3-5 years.

You’re not alone in navigating this changing landscape! AIA California is here to help. We’re bringing people together and we want to hear from you. Tell us about your ‘ups and downs’ – your hopes and dreams – and what’s keeping you up at night.

We are hosting a series of Listening Sessions – curated to promote guided conversations focused on current topics of interest impacting the practice of architecture. Participants are encouraged to give candid feedback about their experiences to learn from each other as well as provide the AIA in California an opportunity to help address these issues and provide resources.

Join Us for these Sessions

Co-hosted by David Garcia, Assoc. AIA and Liam Hanlon, Assoc. AIA
