Thanks to a scholarship from the American Institute of Architects’ Pacific and Northwest Region Chapter, UW’s Kevin Loo-Chan attended the AIA’s 2018 Grassroots Leadership Conference in San Diego. He attended lectures on topics such as Disaster Assistance, the importance of Citizen Architects, and Educational Programs for Underserved Youth.

Kevin highly recommends the experience of attending this relatively small and focused conference full of professionals committed to expanding the influence of architects in our communities. Between lectures, he chatted with the AIA’s President Carl Elefante and toured Louis Kahn’s iconic Salk Institute.
