Grassroots 2017 is an exclusive event for AIA leaders of the American Institute of Architects. The agenda emphasizes component leadership and workshops designed to help component officers become more effective chapter and civic leaders. Members are given the opportunity to provide input on AIA initiatives, share information and ideas, and best practices with their counterparts from around the country. There are also many networking opportunities with one another and AIA national staff.
In addition to the regular programs devoted to building stronger component leaders, this year’s event will introduce attendees to the role of architects in shaping lives through design.
