Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, AIA National has made the difficult decision to postpone the AIA Conference on Architecture 2020, May 14–16 in Los Angeles.
As you know, AIA has been closely monitoring directives from city, county, and state officials, as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) throughout this crisis. Your health and safety are paramount, and AIA feels compelled to postpone the annual conference to minimize the risk to all concerned.
By making this decision in advance, we also hope to minimize any stress or inconvenience. We are working with our vendors and partners to reschedule A'20 now and we will share rescheduling information with you soon.

New Extended Deadline - MAY 31 - for the 2019 AIA Rhode Island Architectural Forum Scholarship Program.
The AIA Rhode Island Architectural Forum is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that was established by AIA Rhode Island to support educational programs within the architectural community.
The Forum’s primary vehicle for supporting architectural education is our Scholarship program. The Forum awards multiple scholarships to qualified financial aid eligible students studying architecture. Funding for architectural scholarships is provided by proceeds from AIA Rhode Island’s annual golf outing. In addition to the AIAri Scholarship program, thanks to the generous support of the family of Norton E. Salk, AIA, we are pleased to also offer the Norton E. Salk Scholarship for Design Excellence.
