As recommendations to protect public health rapidly evolve, we believe it is prudent to postpone the Design Forum. AIA Virginia will be working with our speakers and venue to identify a new date for this exciting program. Watch this page for an announcement regarding new dates. AIA Virginia will be in touch with ticket holders as soon as details can be finalized. Refunds will be available for those who are not able to join us for the rescheduled program.

About the Speakers
