Annual Business Meeting and Designing for the Aging

In addition to our Annual Business Meeting, the September 21 meeting will feature a discussion on Designing for the Aging.  The evening will begin with a networking session including dinner, followed by a brief Chapter Annual Business Meeting before moving into the discussion.

As the large number of “boomers” become the next generation of seniors, we find the need to change the way we think as we design.  Whether commercial or residential, new or retrofit, the architect must understand the various options available, including code and accessibility requirements, to improve senior living.  Something as mundane as a doorknob can be the reason a senior can access their home.  Thinking through the small aspects of design, as well as the large can surely mean easier living for someone in need.

We welcome you to join our panel experts as we discuss what is important to look for as we design for the aging.

This session offers 1.5 LU/HSW and is offered at no cost to AIANEI members.  Registration for nonmembers is only $25.00.
