Deadline is April 28th

The AIA Ohio Valley Region Convention, planned for September 27-29, 2017, will bring together more than 350 architects and allied professionals from Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio for three days of programs and activities. The vibrant city of Indianapolis will be our host, and it is easily accessible to architects and allied professionals from throughout the region.

The Programming Subcommittee is interested in providing a wide range of programs that will appeal to the needs of all convention attendees. The intent is to provide educational sessions focused on AIA’s 10 principles of livable communities. The Programming Subcommittee will evaluate all submissions based on their successful response to one or more of AIA’s 10 principles of livable communities.

 Those ten principles are:

1.Design On A Human Scale

2.Provide Choices

3.Encourage Mixed-Use Development

4.Preserve Urban Centers

5.Vary Transportation Options

6.Build Vibrant Public Spaces

7.Create a Neighborhood Identity

8.Protect Environmental Resources

9.Conserve Landscapes

10.Design Matters

It is the committee’s hope that programs submitted will address the needs of a broad representation of the profession. Those programs deemed to address the needs of the widest range of participants will be given the highest consideration.

Keeping in mind these principles, the Programming Subcommittee is seeking proposals that will be organized into three tracks:

  • Resilience/Aging Infrastructure
  • Equality/Social Equity
  • Mentorship

Presentation Formats

Sessions: Sessions are educational presentations, including panel discussions and lectures, and are planned to be presented at the Crowne Plaza Indianapolis Downtown.

The Committee reserves the right to assign any format to any of the proposals submitted.

Please complete the online Presentation Submission Form with the topic title, abstract and learning objectives, contact information and a brief biography for each presenter. The number of presenters for each program proposal should not exceed three. Refer to the Presentation Submission Guidelines at the beginning of the online form for additional requirements.
