What about COVID-19?

We know that the current state of the world presents unknown times and makes planning future events difficult and at times inconceivable. AIA Iowa is continuing to plan the 2020 AIA Iowa Central States Region Convention as an in-person event with our standard schedule that follow each year. If the current pandemic persists into the fall, we will transition this AIA Iowa CSR Convention to a virtual event in which we still offer a similar format of keynotes and workshops to our attendees and host the exhibit hall in a virtual format.
