Call for Chit Chat Presenters!

The AIA Central Oklahoma September 13th Luncheon is the annual CHIT CHAT (20 slides | 20 seconds) luncheon and we are now taking nominations for presenters.  If you are interested in presenting, please email to  aiacoc@cox.net.  Please include your name, company, title of your talk and a short description about your presentation.  The deadline to submit is August 10, 2018.
 
Here are some guidelines to keep in mind when submitting your presentation for consideration.
  • The AIACOC Chit Chat program is meant to promote the importance of design and therefore must contain some element of design.
  • Chit Chat is not meant to promote one's company or product but rather to promote design and the built environment. 
  • Chit Chat presentations should include a personal aspect; your personal interpretation of some sort of art / life / design experience. 
  • Chit Chat is meant to not only promote architecture but other aspects of the design arts so in addition to architects and intern architects, we welcome interior designers, graphic designers, landscape architects, photographers and artists.

MA+ Architecture School Supply Drive
In celebration of our 50th Anniversary, we want to give back to our local area school districts! We are continuing our Architects for Education program by hosting a year-long school supply drive. All school supplies and donations will be collected at our office and then given to local schools in need. We hope you will join us to help equip our youth for the classroom and build their confidence for the bright future ahead. Please see the list of suggested donations below for items we are currently collecting. Additionally, gift card donations to the following retailers are also appreciated: Target, Walmart & Office Depot.  A year-long effort, we will begin by collecting donations now through August 8th for local area students heading to school for the 2018/19 school year. Please drop off donated items at the MA+ office in Oklahoma City at 4000 N Classen Blvd., Suite 100N by Wednesday, August 8th. Thank you for supporting our great school districts!
