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.
