ACSA 108TH Annual Meeting

ACSA108TH Annual Meeting–OPEN

MARCH 12-14, 2020 in SAN DIEGO, CA

REINVENTED ANNUAL MEETING
ACSA is restructuring the Annual Meeting and implementing changes that better support the needs of architecture faculty and enhance architectural education and research. With these updates, ACSA aims to create a more inclusive, transparent, and impactful event that elevates, addresses, and disseminates knowledge on pressing concerns in society through the agency of architecture and allied disciplines. 

The proposed changes are intended to meet the following goals:

  1. Broaden Participation
  2. Strengthen Community + Improve Engagement
  3. Increase Value + Relevance
  4. Enhance Transparency + Improved Quality
  5. Offer More Inclusive Conference Leadership

ACSA has created an Annual Meeting Committee, with combined representation of ACSA members, the ACSA board and ACSA staff. The new conference leadership is intended to increase transparency and inclusivity while keeping in mind effectiveness and maintaining rigor. The committee’s primary deliverable is the peer-reviewed content, along with themed sessions. 

 

Following are the 2020 108th ACSA Annual Meeting Committee members:
