AIA Grassroots 2017, held Mar. 8 -10 proved to be a powerful and enlightening trip for many. Megan Dougherty, Assoc. AIA, who was a presenter, said, “Grassroots is one of my favorite conferences because it brings together passionate people from around the country and provides for great networking opportunities and leadership training.
The panel on which she participated, which also included California architect and Vice President of the Academy of Emerging Professionals, Ben Kasdan, AIA along with two other participants from New Jersey, and moderated by AIACC’s Nicki Dennis Stephens, sparked conversation, which is exactly what Dougherty was hoping for. “Our panel led to a great breakout session where we helped component leaders strategize their short term and long term goals for their component’s EP groups..
She was taken aback pleasantly surprised by the all the active active participation sharing.
But don’t just take AIACC’s word for it. Photos can be worth much more than words. Just look at the networking and sharing in progress and see for yourself.
