UPCOMING CHAPTER EVENTS...
NOW NEXT FUTURE I TECHNOLOGY 10/28
A one-day provocative conference focused on how technology enables design – now, next, and in the future for the architectural profession in California. The AIACC is bringing together architects, designers, emerging talent, and affiliates to inspire new ways of thinking about the future of design, practice, and the built environment through examples of their work and case studies. Technology is evolving at unprecedented rates and transforming our pencils into stylus and our spectacles into Virtual Reality headgear. At this event, you will experience design from those who are pioneering these technologies into their practices, and be inspired to where the future can bring you!
FRIDAY FORUM 11/4
LEARN MORE ABOUT PROPOSITIONS 51 AND 53
Your vote is important in order to protect our profession's best interests. This month we will not be at Brookside and hope you'll join us for breakfast at an architectural historic venue -- the offices of Architecture for Education. Come learn about two important propositions due on the November 8th ballot. Proposition 51 & 53 relate directly to our field and the chapter wants to get you up-to-speed on things.
CHAPTER PROGRAM 11/16

Now comes the third and final installment -- "Workplace Culture/Diversity & Inclusion." Why does this matter? How will diversity and inclusion affect where we work and how we thrive in and experience our workplace? Come find out and share your thoughts on November 16th!
