Leadership! Advocacy! Networking!

Thank you for attending the 2011 AIA Grassroots Leadership and Legislative Conference, the premier annual gathering for AIA leaders.

Did You Miss Grassroots 2011?

As the Nor’easter wreaked havoc on much of the country, including the Mid-Atlantic, many of you were unable to attend this year’s Grassroots Leadership and Legislative Conference. In an effort to make you feel like you were there, we have photographed some memorable moments to share with you, compliments of Dave Ruff Photography. Enjoy!

P.S. The password to view the photos is aiaaia.
