Program Proposals

AIA Minnesota welcomes your program ideas for continuing education seminars.  Seminars are typically delivered to the AIA Minnesota membership through the Continuing Education Committee and the Convention Programs Committee.

We are interested in hearing your ideas for programs and finding out who you’ve heard speak that you would recommend. Please send your suggestions to Deanna Christiansen, Continuing Education Director at the AIA Minnesota office.

If you have a program already developed for delivery and would like to submit a proposal, please submit a proposal including the following information:

A topic-descriptive title: no more than 64 characters and spaces long.

Program description: In 200 words or less, describe your program / presentation. Be very specific about what participants are expected to learn or how they will benefit from your session. Please note that program content cannot be product or service specific. All presentation material must be non-proprietary.

Learning Objectives: List at least four learning objectives for your program. Learning objectives state specifically what the participant will be able to do as a result of participating in your session. For example: "Participants will be able to properly detail dimension stone and correctly specify mock-up panels."

Speakers: List the names of all presenters for your program. Include their title, company or firm, full mailing address, phone number, fax number, and email address. Describe each person's speaking experience and his / her expertise with the particular seminar topic. Include a brief biographical narrative on each speaker.

Time: Ideal length of time for your program.

Your proposal will be reviewed by either the Continuing Education Committee and/or the Convention Programs Committee.  More information may be requested before a final decision can be made. Proposals are received with the understanding that program speakers are providing their services pro bono.  

Send your proposal to Deanna Christiansen, Continuing Education Director for AIA Minnesota.
