We’re developing an incredible education program for AIA Convention 2015, the largest annual gathering of architects in the country, and we’d love your help.
If you’re an articulate subject matter expert looking for an opportunity to educate, engage, and connect with the architecture and design community, we invite you to submit an education proposal between July 1 and August 15, 2014.
Each year, attendees rate our speakers as a highlight of the packed, three-day convention experience. Your proposal should demonstrate how you will create an experience that inspires and empowers; features interactive, engaging learning; and showcases emerging trends and innovations.
All proposals are evaluated by the AIA Convention Education Peer Review Team.
In Phase 1, proposals will be rated on demonstration of the following characteristics: Emerging trends, new ideas, engaging learning, and knowledge level appropriate to our audience.
If your proposal moves to Phase 2, it will be evaluated for learner outcomes, speaker expertise, and value to attendees.
Even if your proposal is not accepted, you’ll still gain value from the experience: The AIA Education Team provides feedback on every proposal.

AIA Convention offers speakers a unique opportunity to share their knowledge, expertise, and best practices with members of the design community. Some of the perks of being an AIA Convention speaker include complimentary registration, recognition on the national stage by your peers, and the opportunity to earn continuing education credits towards licensure, to name a few.
We know it’s hard work, but it’s definitely worth it!
Our process is designed to streamline the submission, to save you time, and to result in the best possible content at AIA Convention 2015.
