There's a lot going on with our industry partner, the AIA|LA. There are calls for entry, not to mention plenty of other events and programming. We're delighted to give you a quick rundown of coming attractions—to pique your curiosity and give you the heads up so you can mark your calendars for what promises to be a busy 2014.

On the calls for entry side, you have till April 1 to claim a spot in the annual Restaurant Design Awards competition, which happens to be celebrating its tenth anniversary this year. They're looking for projects done in the US as well as abroad by US–based architects and designers. Have a great bar or fabulous restaurant? Get your project in for consideration. The awards will be announced at this year's Dwell on Design in June. 

Next month marks the opening of the organization's annual 2 X 8 EVOLVE Student Exhibition at the A+D Museum. It's a great chance to check out the work of the next generation of architects and designers, as the work of students from institutions across California is highlighted. 

For firms in today's landscape, making a go of it can be a challenge, especially for smaller firms. After the success of last year's Small Firms Workshop Series, the program of quarterly events will begin again this month. The workshops, geared toward principals or managers, emerging professionals and those looking to start their own firms, will offer practical information on the nuts and bolts of running a practice. 

Finally, make time for next week's City Leaders Breakfast Series on Thursday, March 20, featuring Bobby Shriver, candidate, Los Angeles County Supervisor—District #3. You'll have a chance to participate in a roundtable discussion and hear his thoughts on the future of Los Angeles County.
