Registration Open for 2016 Design Matters Conference

The Association of Architecture Organizations 2016 Design Matters Conference will be November 2–4, 2016, in Miami. Registration for the conference is now open. Presentation proposals are due August 15.

Presentation proposals can be a 10-minute lightning talk sharing a key takeaway, or a 60-minute breakout session.

The Design Matters Conference is the world’s only dedicated annual meeting that brings together designers, journalists and civic leaders together with nonprofit professionals and volunteers that create cultural programs (exhibitions, tours, lectures and symposia, festivals and films, youth outreach) to spur broader public interest in architecture and design.

Last year, APA President Carol Rhea, FAICP, spoke at the conference on planning successes, such as those highlighted in APA’s Great Places in America program, can be used to stimulate civic thought and discussions. APA and AAO have an ongoing partnership agreement.
