By all accounts, one of the most valuable benefits of AIA membership is the ability to network with peers. While this occurs at the local level and virtually through the National AIA Knowledge Communities, members have been asking for a way to connect on issues of statewide concern. The Custom Residential Architects Network (CRAN) has been eager to connect members statewide. To that end, the first meeting of CA CRAN will be held on Wednesday, June 4, 2013 from 12:00 – 4:00 p.m. , at the San Diego Convention Center. All members engaged in custom residential work are invited to attend, regardless of formal affiliation with the AIA CRAN Knowledge Community.
This meeting will be held in conjunction with PCBC – a gathering of America’s most prominent single family and multifamily builders, developers, investors, lenders, architects, contractors, building scientists, marketers and product manufacturers. Through targeted educational forums, exclusive networking venues, a curated exhibit floor experience, product “matchmaking” sessions and more, PCBC is dedicated to creating better ways for the housing industry to connect and engage.
