Allied Members are crucial to the success of AIA Austin Members and our Chapter. The Allied Member Roundtable provides an opportunity for interaction and participation. We invite you to the Austin Center for Architecture for lunch and a panel discussion to further increase our alignment and alliance.

Please RSVP here.


What makes architects more likely to choose one service or materials provider over another? A panel with three prominent architecture firm principals will discuss what makes a company stand out in this competitive market. Christine Sheng, Assoc. AIA, will moderate, and then the floor will be open for your questions.
