Some traditions are meant to be broken. AIA South Atlantic Region introduces ASPIRE—an all-new conference format, taking you beyond traditional convention centers for an immersive experience around Asheville, North Carolina, on April 14-16.

The AIA state chapters of Georgia and the Carolinas invite you to two days of tours, intimate talks, networking and keynotes, hosted across historic venues downtown.

Attendees can earn up to 9 LUs while taking in the charming and bustling city. Divide downtime between the many bars in town, or come to Pack Square and enjoy food, live music among our ASPIRE vendors.
