    • 12:00 PM - 6:00 PM
    • Room 325 - Capitol Building

    This day is designed to make use of your architect’s voice to advocate for the profession!

    As professionals in our given fields, we tend to focus on the client work in front of us, and often lose sight of the importance of engaging in broader discussions affecting our practices.  In today’s increasingly litigious and politically-driven environment we need to be prepared to engage in public policy discussions to protect and enhance the value, integrity and effectiveness of our professional practice.  

    Join Darryl and Jennifer James (AIA Montana’s Lobbyists) in Helena, on January 24th, and learn more about the how, when and why to engage with the Montana Legislature. 

    For this day to be effective, we need you to join us in helping to make a difference.  

    Let your elected officials know what you do!

    Architects work with clients ~ Architects strengthen society ~ Architects design solutions ~ Architects transform communities

    To insure adequate participation plus room space and food, please RSVP to by January 21st.

    FunderMax, is a highly durable exterior wall cladding product that is constantly undergoing further development to ensure both of these aspects can be depended upon. Just as the range of rainscreen applications is becoming increasingly diverse, so the range of decors is also achieving continually new dimensions in terms of nuances and variety. Now you can even choose your very own ‘individual’ décor for your rainscreen cladding so that you can really express your creativity. FunderMax exterior wall cladding collection remains true to its success factors and, whatever décor is used, will always stand for consistent protection and uncompromising strength. As a contemporary, cost effective rainscreen facade it is resistant in the face of all external influences.

    PLEASE NOTE THE LOCATION!!! Our conference room is already in use that day.  We will meet at- Speaking Socially Conference Room- 509 1st Ave N.
