AIA Kansas is excited to return to in-person events and are now seeking innovative speakers and facilitators for presentations at the 2022 Conference.   We are working diligently to ensure that our annual conference provides relevant, high-quality content for our members and the profession.  We hope that you will consider sharing your expertise, experience and knowledge.

In our 101st year, AIA Kansas is thinking about the next century.  What is our vision for the next  100 years?  The 2022 annual conference will examine ways to create sustainability in the practice of architecture as a response to a world forever shaped by the global pandemic, population shifts, and advancing technology.  


Do you have lessons to impart to fellow architects - or ideas for navigating a shifting architectural landscape in the future?  Submit a proposal by March 31, 2022.   

Presentation Guidelines: Presentation length: 60 minutes.


Word Count: The proposal abstract (250 words or less) should be given in paragraph form.


CEU's: Presentations must qualify for one AIA Continuing Education Learning Unit (LU), to be administered by AIA Kansas. 


HSW Credits: Presentations intended to qualify for and deliver Health, Safety and Welfare (HSW) Learning Units must show alignment with CES HSW requirements and prospective presenters should be familiar with the criteria for HSW presentations.
