AAO supports a number of knowledge communities to keep our Members informed of innovative programming, best practices, and to cultivate relationships with individuals across our network.
Starting in 2020, the AAO network has been focusing more closely on the topics of digital programming and online content. In 2021, we expanded our discussion to include programming scenarios and strategy in a post-Covid world. Upcoming meetings are listed below, and we strongly encourage that a representative or two from your organization participate. These are support groups, if you will, in what has become a series of regularly-scheduled info exchanges and general check-ins.
Architecture + Design Education Network
A forum for sharing resources and exchanging information on effective practices for K-12 architecture and design education. Emphasis is given to issues of organizational development and management for community-based programs.
This Network promotes discussion and peer learning among appointed chief executive officers and principal directors who manage organizations engaged in activities contributing to public education on architecture and design. Participation is open to all CEOs and principal directors.
This Network promotes discussion and information sharing among AAO Members concerned with the planning and development of exhibitions on architecture, urbanism, and design.
