On June 20th the AIA national convention will take place in Denver with a heavy focus on leadership in the profession. Consider for a second what our communities, workplaces, and home would look like without the influence of an architect. Unfortunately, in many places it isn't difficult; this space isn't about how or why this happened, but rather how and why this is starting to change for the better. In some communities, AIA members and AIA components are leading the charge for greater synergy between the resident and their community. These citizen architects asserting a stronger leadership role and as a result they are designing a better place for their community. Check back during the course of June to see what architects are doing to be leaders in their communities, and share your story with us on Facebook.
