TORONTO, August 1, 2018 – The Ontario Association of Architects is inviting individuals and organizations to submit proposals for Continuing Education (ConEd) sessions held at the 2019 OAA Annual Conference. The event takes place at the Québec City Convention Centre and Fairmont Le Château Frontenac from May 22 to 24, 2019.
The three-day interdisciplinary forum brings together Ontario architects, interns, students, engineers, interior designers and other allied professionals. In addition to ConEd seminars, it includes workshops, panel presentations, architectural tours and social events.
The 2019 OAA Annual Conference is titled Empowering Change. At its core, architecture is about solving problems. From climate change to housing affordability to social cohesion, architects are catalysts for transformation, leading change from where we are today to where we need to be tomorrow.
Experts are currently being sought to discuss topics related to architectural design, ranging from heritage building restoration and sustainability to project management, building codes and construction law.
The deadline for ConEd session proposals is Monday, October 1. All presenters will be contacted as to whether their proposals were accepted for inclusion by Friday, December 21.
The Ontario Association of Architects (OAA) is a self-regulating organization governed by the Architects Act, which is a statute of the Government of Ontario. The OAA’s mission is to represent, regulate, support and promote the profession of architecture in the interest of all Ontarians and to lead the design and delivery of built form in the Province of Ontario.
