Committee Activities

Presentation Materials Available for AIA Connecticut Members
BP&R Committee members have put together two presentations that are suitable for use for various community organizations such as library groups, Rotary Clubs, or Chambers of Commerce. AIA Connecticut members are encouraged to offer these short programs as a way to establish community relationships.

Presentations available:

  • Fundamentals of Accessibility (author, Linda Reeder, AIA)
