AIA NC is pleased to annouce the 2017 Design Conference in Wilmington, NC September 13-15. Mark your calendar for this event-- the only statewide design conference for the over 2000 members of AIA North Carolina for 2017.  


The theme for the 2017 AIA NC Design Conference is ACTIVATE: Design | Collaboration | Community Engagement. During the three day conference, attendees will have the opportunity to tour some of the most dynamic areas in Wilmington, interact with industry professionals through panel discussions and break out sessions, and participate in design charrettes in partnership with the City of Wilmington. All of our participants; architects, sponsors, exhibitors, invited guests and more, are invited to share their skills in charrettes that will center around two growth areas in need of visionary direction and purpose. Charrette participants will leave the conference with an experience they can use to ACIVATE their own communities through design, collaboration, and community engagement.
