A productive, diverse, culturally competent, and engaged workforce is essential to the future of the architecture profession. To foster this outcome, the AIA will broaden its view of the opportunities and challenges related to workforce development, and provide a more cohesive and structured approach to identify key catalysts in the areas of market demand, employment capacity, education, work experience, compensation, on-the-job training, career outlook, and organizational culture.

Risk Strategies

Each year, in partnership with AIA Middle TN, Risk Strategies, presents an all-day seminar on legal issues and risks in the construction field, and how to best mitigate those risks. The seminars are typically held in December. If you have any questions regarding the Annual Risk Strategies Roadshow, please contact us.
