housing knowlege at aia 2016 convention

The first time I registered to attend an AIA (American Institute of Architects) convention, wading through course descriptions (and checking which ones I could afford) took up more than my lunch hour. Now, AIA offers “tracks” to help you select a specific type of learning experience. Similarly, the Housing Knowledge Community (HKC), compiled the following list of housing related programs for those interested in housing and community development.

We are especially excited about our own pre-convention workshop, described in the postcard below. There’s still time to sign up.
