Each academic year the the AIAS hosts three separate conferences focusing on specific themes. For more information on each opportunity and how to participate, please visit the links below.
Every year, the AIAS collects in one city over the winter holiday to network, hear from our sponsors, learn from other leaders, discuss issues relevant to architecture and design education, and conduct official AIAS business. In addition to the energy of being surrounded by others with the same interests, the new Board of Directors is elected from a pool of incredibly inspiring candidates as they have speeches, debates and networking opportunities with AIAS members!

spring 2020 / fall 2020
Each year, regional conferences take place alternating between the spring and the fall in the Northeast, South, Midwest and West Quads. These gatherings, known as Quad Conferences, are hosted by local chapters who have been selected to organize the event by their Quad. Themes vary based on the city, local culture, and architectural topic of choice.
Quad Conferences are a terrific way to meet other students in your region, learn about architecture outside of the classrooms and have a lot of fun.
For more than 30 years the AIAS has been preparing future leaders in architecture through our AIAS Grassroots Leadership Conference.
Each year the conference brings together chapter leaders, AIAS Freedom By Design program leaders, and other emerging professionals seeking insight and preparation on how to make the most of their year ahead. Grassroots is usually held in the Washington, DC area in July.
