2020 President's Dinner

Each year, AIA Seattle recognizes leadership and achievement in design and the built environment through its honors program. Honors acknowledge excellence and strengthen ties between architects and the many professions that partner with them to make a difference through design. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are doubling down on our commitment to celebrating the best of us, transforming this into a unique, virtual event.

Registrants will be sent a link for one device to join AIA Seattle’s private Zoom meeting, where you will be grouped at a pre-assigned “table” for discussion, prior to viewing a private livestream of remarks from our award winners and special guests.

Zoom Meeting | Video Livestream
5:00PM Networking/Social Hour | 5:30PM Livestream

COST:  $10 Individuals | $50 Premium Table*

*Premium Tables includes “seating” for eight (8) guests/devices.
Thanks to the support of our Corporate Allied Partners and Board, we are happy to announce that 100% of revenue from this program will now support AIA Seattle’s new Diversity in Leadership Member Fund, to support the membership dues of those from diverse backgrounds to join AIA for the first time, and enter leadership roles within the organization. More details on this fund to come.
