The Steering Committee meets once a month. Everyone is welcome to join the Steering Committee and participate in the planning of events and activities. For upcoming meetings, please see the calendar.
LA.IDEA's annual events include Maestros de Arquitectura where we host world renown architects and invite them to have a personal chat with the audience and present their work. We also offer a variety of Tertulia's, where we have discussions and/or have an expert guest discuss interesting and relevant themes and projects. Our community Outreach events are diverse, for example Mundo Verde, where we teach summer courses for children. Additionally, we enjoy organizing and participating in other community-oriented events like career days and education programs. LA.IDEA hosts networking events for our members and everyone to enjoy.
