Art By Architects

The American Institute of Architects Central Oklahoma Chapter is excited to host Art by Architects .. The exhibition will showcase artwork by members of the American Institute of Architects, Central Oklahoma Chapter and will be exhibited during Architecture Week 2019 next April. The exhibition is open to all members of the AIA Central Oklahoma Chapter.  
All entry forms and electronic submissions must be received no later than February 5, 2019. Each entrant may enter up two pieces of art for consideration.
All works must be submitted electronically, to be considered, via email or drop box. Only submissions following the proper format as outlined below will be accepted. Send the your artwork image in a JPEG format in a file no larger than 10 MB. Email to aiacoc@cox.net with the subject line: Art by Architects by (your name). For example: Art by Architects by Jon Smith.
All submitted work must be original and have been created in the past five years. All objects and installations must be designed to be exhibited on walls, on the floor or on pedestals. Works to be hung from walls must be constructed and wired on the back to accommodate installation using appropriate hooks, eyes and wires. Framing should be to professional standards. Wall hung objects aren't restricted by size but please consider the weight since they will be wall hung. Sculpture and other 3rd dimensional media must be structurally sound and will be displayed on platforms, tables or on the floor.  All other media (e.g. digital media) are welcome to be submitted.  The artist must provide the floor area space requirements for its presentation as part of the entry form under "size" (example: "4'x5' Projection screen, projector placed on 18"x18"x18" box 10' away from wall.").  The artist must provide the devices by which it will be displayed (e.g. projector, computer and screen, etc.)."
We are partnering with the Individual Artist Gallery (IAO) and the works will be insured against theft and loss while on display.
The AIA Art by Architects Committee will select the pieces for the show and notify the entrants no later than February 25, 2019. Selected participants will then receive details for delivery and additional information on the exhibition.
The Art By Architects Exhibit will open on Friday, April 5th at the IAO Gallery and will remain on display at the gallery through April 26, 2018.

SMPS Oklahoma: Marketing Resolutions

"Nailing the Interview"
When: Friday, January 18th, 2019
Time:  9:00am- 4:00pm
Location: Boldt, 101 Hefner Rd, OKC, OK 73114
Nailing the interview - bringing together the right message, the right team, and the right pitch
Great coaching skills are one thing, but there is so much more to a winning interview. The message must resonate with the client, but, almost as important, it must resonate with the team presenting it. The team has to gel, come together, support each other, and sometimes save one another. That doesn't just happen. Marketers don't just put the right people in a room, coach them to like each other, and believe a message they crafted - it's much more, especially when you really nail it! Come learn how to craft a message for the interview that everyone believes in and wants. Learn how to pull a team together and develop chemistry that triumphs over those dreaded interview scenarios. Come learn how to sell it by just being real, being the best you can be, and by being on point. This is not about interview coaching - there are a lot experts that teach that - this is about creating a story and telling it so that everyone buys in and votes "yes!"
