EVENTS: What's Happening with Our Industry Partner—AIA|LA This August

We may be hitting the dog days of summer, but that doesn’t mean the AIA|Los Angeles is taking the month of August off. Instead, they have a great group of events planned in the coming days and weeks, with opportunities and seminars that will challenge, inform and inspire.

Before we get to that, we wanted to let you know they’re looking for homes to be considered for inclusion in the organization’s fall home tours. If you’ve got a project (or even more), visit here to learn how you can submit your work.

First up, on August 5, there’s the AIA|LA and Department of City Planning’s Urban Design Studio. They’re looking to tap the city’s design talent to critically review projects. Participants will have the chance offer feedback on the direction of our built environment in Los Angeles.

The AIA|LA Historic Resources Committee has a great event planned on August 6. Join Alan White as he shares the tools GBG uses as they dive into the inner workings of historic buildings in a presentation on New Tools for Old Buildings.

On August 14, you’ll get the lowdown on contracts with "Your Contract: Friend or Foe?" - A Review of Key Contract Risks, How to Manage your Liability Exposure, and Avoiding Working for Free, part of the 2014 ProDev Series. You’ll get learning units and gain a deeper understanding of the inner workings of contracts and how they serve to limit your exposure to risk.

You should also mark your calendars for a pair of breakfast events this month. Mary D. Nichols, the chair of the California Air Resources Board, will be the featured guest at the event August 15. City Councilman Mike Bonin will appear at the event’s August 29 date.

For more information on any of these upcoming events, or for more ways to participate, be sure to visit AIA|LA’s Web site.
