Sponsorship of AIA Kansas is your opportunity to gain exposure to our members, position your company as a thought leader and trusted source among the design community, to tap into commercial potential and to strategically build relationships in an increasingly competitive business environment.
There are sponsorship opportunities available for our educational programming, annual conference and year end celebration.
The AIA Central States Region is a designation by AIA National for the states of Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and Oklahoma. The Central States Region is represented by two Directors who sit on the National Board and help guide policy matters for the national professional organization. Each month, these Directors convene a Central States Region Board, representing each of the components (i.e. chapters) in the region to discuss issues for both the region and at the national level. There are currently two Associate AIA Directors who participate in these calls, representing Emerging Professionals to the Region.
The AIA Central States Region Emerging Professionals Committee evolved out of an interest to better engage professionals earlier in their career. Our demographic is considered very important to the future of the profession and this committee is looking to advocate for our interests to the leadership of our local, state and national chapters.
AIA Kansas will kick-off a pilot leadership program soon. The program will be grounded in deep discussion of leadership trends and strategies, equip participants with a profound understanding of their own leadership style, offer approaches for personal growth, and provide opportunities to practice in a fail safe environment.
Applications and program details will be released in the near future.
