Make a difference in rural Minnesota communities by volunteering your time and expertise.
The Minnesota Design Team (MDT) is an AIA Minnesota committee that has been around since 1983. Its multidisciplinary teams have worked with more than 100 rural communities helping them to improve their built environments. Continuing Education Units are available for team visits. Join us each month if you are seeking good fellowship, fun, and an opportunity to do something that makes a difference.
