Sponsorship Opportunities

Did you know sponsors are the foundation of many of our programs?  Their support of AIA Orange County allows us to expand our design awards; create events such as the Artwalk, member meetings, panel discussions, and COTE tours.  Sponsorship further helps us build a stronger associates program to help members advance to licensure, and provide ADA seminars for license renewal.


As we look to the value of AIA Orange County membership, our goal is to expand the opportunities provided for you to learn, experience, and mingle with other members and our communities.  We can achieve these goals through sponsorship support  Click Here

School Your Space
Wednesday, April 23thThis AIA/CES presentation will detail how a college campus is like a small city. People live, eat, study, exercise, perform, and sometimes even seek medical attention within the grounds of their school.

Unique and thoughtful storage solutions can assist in the creation of highly functional interior spaces within the college campus environment. Let us look at some of the most common campus facilities and understand how storage can be incorporated into their design.

AIA Contract Documents-Introducing ACD5!

Home Trend Design Survey
The survey measures general business conditions at residential architecture firms while also spotlighting architects' expertise on particular home design trends on a rotating basis. As a result, the news media, consultants, and other industry observers consider the HDTS a credible and useful housing business resource.


Nowhere is such information more valuable, however, than in the strategic decision-making that drives the residential design and construction industry. Architects need ready access to reliable, profession-specific information to plan for a better future

AIA National Committee Opportunity -

Healthcare Design

The Design for Aging Knowledge Community partners with an outside group (Vendome in partnership with Center for Health Design) on a yearly conference, Environments for the Aging. This conference brings together developers, owners, design professionals, product manufacturers, academia, aging specialists, and government officials to  explore new ideas for creating places that  support people as they age.


 It will take place May 3-6, 2014, at the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim.


The DFA KC would love to have some local representatives that could help out with content planning from the AIA side. They are looking for anyone with Universal Design, Aging in Place, Facility Design, or CCRC Design experience. In addition, this conference hosts tours of local (45min radius) facilities, and it would be great to get some recommendations of places.


Please forward an email to jgill@aiaoc.org if interested in participating in this event.
