Do you enjoy gathering with colleagues to discuss timely architectural practice issues over drinks? If so, join AIA Minneapolis’ Evolving Practice Forum and Urban Design Committee for a happy hour at the Black Forest Inn. The theme of our June discussion will be Expertise or Pigeonholing? The Value and Potential Pitfalls of Specialization for both firms and individual practitioners. Come share your thoughts on the topic and meet new people.

The Evolving Practice Forum creates opportunities for AIA Minneapolis members to share their common experiences, debate new ideas, and collectively engage in challenges posed by the continually evolving nature of architectural practice.
