This year’s Connecticut Architecture Conference + Expo will offer a mix of programs/sessions in breakout rooms and the exhibitor floor.  Architects, Allied Members and Subject Professionals may submit for the main breakout session rooms.  Programs may be one or two hours (two-hour spaces are limited); we are looking for 30 one-hour sessions and 6 two-hour sessions. The programs/sessions for the exhibitor floor will have a special call for proposals in early summer.

Programs should address one of the following topics:

  • Business
  • Technology
  • Sustainability/ Adaptive Re-use/ NetZero
  • Materials and Building Performance
  • Urban Planning and Development
  • Energy
  • Design

Sessions will be selected based on merit and the need to create a well-balanced program. Professionals at all stages of their careers are encouraged to develop and submit a program for consideration. Topics exploring the architecture of Connecticut and the New England Region are encouraged.

The proposal must include:

  • Program Title
  • Speaker Name, Professional Bio/Credentials, Speaker and Submitter Contact Information (email and cell phone)
  • Program Description
  • Four Learning Objectives




Program Proposals may be submitted electronically via JotForm (see link above) March 20, 2020 for consideration. A program submission does not guarantee it will be part of CACX.

Accepted Proposals will be notified in April 2020.
