Louisiana Critical Issues Summit

January 14-15, 2016


“I would highly recommend that every architect involved in public work attend this event.  It really lets you see things from all sides of our industry – construction, facility management, legal concerns and design.  The legal panel alone was worth the price of admission – it was fascinating.  We even get continuing education for attending.  This is something that should not be missed.”

– Lisa H. Nice, AIA, AIA Louisiana Past President
