The Leadership Institute is a national leadership development program of the American Institute of Architects. Using a digital conferencing model, the program connects multiple locations for an interactive, one-day learning experience. Over 600 architects and emerging professionals have participated since 2015. Early bird rate available until 9/15!


Our National Plenary Broadcast is offered in four time zones (ET, CT, MT, and PT). The goal is to bring the content to you. This not only reduces the cost of travel and registration for participants, but also elevates the valuable regional discussions on leadership at our many AIA Components.

Our five Regional Venues located in Bentonville, Arkansas; Detroit, Michigan; New Orleans, Louisiana; Pasadena, California; and Washington, DC offer participants a full-day program of 6.25 LU|HSW. If you are unable to travel, we also offer Virtual Attendee participation of 3.75 LU|HSW, including single viewer and group viewing options.


Learning objectives:

1. Professional & Industry Leadership:
Participants will gain an understanding of how architect design influence can impact communities through the application of diverse leadership strategies across the industry from different career stage perspectives and how participants can apply this framework to promote personal and organizational leadership effectiveness within design practice, firm and community settings.

2. Design & Business Leadership:
Participants will be able to identify and apply leadership theories and strategies related to organizational behavior including concepts on individual behavior, group and team behavior, culture, and communication techniques in the process of guiding people in design, environmental and preservation endeavors.

3. Community Leadership:
Participants will be able to distinguish how architects and designers can connect community revitalization efforts and techniques to address environmental issues, hazards and historic preservation when working in neighborhoods where design solutions are challenged by physical, ecological and conservation risks.

4. Citizen Architect:
Attendees will be able to apply concepts promoting the important role of architects in producing safe, healthy and socially responsible communities through effective collaboration techniques recognizing the civic engagement, and leadership role architects can fulfill through elected and appointed government service, philanthropy and pro bono assistance.

5. Advocacy
Participants will recognize how architects can have a role in local and regional issues addressing design, environmental and social equity through using a process to identify the problem, lead the call to action, and design the solutions that result in economic and social advantage for the entire community.
