What's New in 2013

This year in Denver, we’re continuing a national dialog within our profession on the value of architecture and the important role architects play as stewards of the built environment.

Don’t miss two special leadership sessions:

  • Clinton Global Initiative
  • Leadership in the American Medical Association

You’ll notice quite a few changes in this year’s education programs.  Classrooms will be more intimate and interactive, with the focus on you, the learner.  Speakers will be untethered—no more podiums, head tables, or wired mics. We know you’ll enjoy this new learning environment and look forward to hearing your feedback.

Expo Education
Expo education returns to the show floor this year.  Plan to attend 60-minute exhibitor-sponsored sessions in one of four CE Theatres or 15-minute sessions within exhibitors’ booths and receive the latest information that can inform your design and building processes.

Advance Registration for Seminars
Register in advance for continuing education seminars and be guaranteed a seat! On-site registration will be available. However, seminars may be sold out prior to the convention. You are strongly encouraged to register for seminars when you register to attend convention.

Registering for your preferred seminar does not obligate you to attend that particular seminar. If any seats for a seminar remain unclaimed 10 minutes before it begins, then attendees who did not pre-register will be admitted on a first-come, first-seated basis.

Itinerary Planner
Once you have preregistered for your continuing education seminars or other convention programs, log in to the itinerary planner to see your full itinerary. From there you can print, email, tweet, or post your itinerary to Facebook.
What’s more, you can save programs of interest to your itinerary even if you haven’t completed registration. However, please note that saving a program to your itinerary does not guarantee you a seat. The only way to guarantee your seat is to register in advance.

Convention Badges
We’re always looking for ways to “green” the AIA convention This year, we’re reducing our impact on the environment by no longer mailing out convention badges before the convention.
Bring your e-mail registration confirmation to the Already Registered/Scan & Print Station in the AIA registration area at the Colorado Convention Center. You will print your badge and receive your lanyard and bag at this location.

SD Courses
As of January 1, 2013, AIA members are not required to earn continuing education credit in sustainable design (SD). As a result, convention courses are no longer marked with “SD.”
