AIA Minnesota’s Leadership FORUM program was created to foster and develop leadership for AIA Minnesota member architects during mid-career. The mission of the FORUM is to assist AIA members in understanding and strengthening their role in leadership in areas of community involvement, government, professional practice, business development, and mentorship.

  • Tuition is $675 (limited scholarships are available)
  • Participation is limited to 16 people

Program Format

The Forum consists of six sessions from January through June. Experts speak at each session addressing leadership styles, the impact of personality type on leadership, communication, motivation, trends, knowing when and how to lead, and finally application.
