AIA + 2030 Professional Series


 The final session of the AIA+2030 Professional Series occurred on Friday, June 8th. The session featured Carol Ross Barney, Principal of Ross Barney Architects (Chicago), Steve McDowell (Director of Design) and Joe Keal of BNIM (AIA National 2011 Firm of the Year) from Kansas City. The session was a huge success, and capped off what has been an eminently successful program. 

This program's success was the direct result of a lot of hard work by many individuals on the COTE committee and beyond, and we'd like to express our appreciation and thanks for the efforts of all. We'd like to first thank all of our sponsors and presenters. This course simply would not have been possible without their enthusiastic participation.

Sessions assume participants have an immediate understanding of the suite of energy efficiency strategies and technologies available to a design professional. Session information is cumulative and aims to provide an overall understanding of specific design strategies and how they can be integrated to provide optimal results. Regional and national case studies will illustrate concepts and lessons learned. Experts from both academia and active practice will lead the sessions. Participants will be provided tools to take back to their firms to help share and implement the knowledge and skills gained. 

In order to maximize group learning and information transfer, session attendance will be limited to 45 seats. It is highly recommended that individuals experience the series in its entirety. Register now to guarantee a seat!
