We’re developing an incredible education program for AIA Convention 2017, and we’d love your help.
If you’re a subject matter expert with a great concept for an educational session, we invite you to submit a proposal.

What’s behind a winning proposal?

Each year, attendees rate our speakers as a top highlight of their convention experience. Your proposal should show how you’ll create an experience that inspires and empowers; features interactive, engaging learning; and showcases emerging trends and innovations.
During the first round of review, we’ll evaluate how well proposals reflect emerging trends, new ideas, engaging learning, and knowledge level in support of our curricular framework. In particular, we’re interested in proposals for sessions that are 60 and 90 minutes in length and appropriate for intermediate, advanced, and expert knowledge levels.
Proposals that advance to the second round will be evaluated for learner outcomes, speaker expertise, attendee value, and 2016 speaker scores, where applicable.
We’ll provide feedback on every proposal, accepted or not, by October 15.
