Event Summary
This year’s 2013 Grassroots Annual Leadership and Legislative Conference is designed to help AIA’s leaders reach their fullest potential in their firms, components, and communities. With a wide range of leadership opportunities being offered, the event will focus on a leadership curriculum that allows leaders to acquire and enhance their leadership skills and focus on specific hands-on practice exercises. Continuing the Grassroots tradition, there will be many occasions for attendees to provide input on AIA initiatives and share information and ideas with AIA component staff and their counterparts from around the country. The agenda will also include a dynamic legislative conference that will address how you can effectively influence the political arena in your community. Two vibrant keynote speakers will provide their insights on the current and future state of the profession and organizations and our roles as leaders.
