Conference Wrap It's a Wrap! 2015 ALA Midwest Conference and Product Show LA hosted our 17th Annual Architecture Conference and Product Show on Tuesday, October 6th at the Drury Lane Conference Center. Approximately 350 attendees enjoyed the day visiting exhibitors at the product show, networking, and attending educational seminars. Architects were able to earn up to 8.25 learning units throughout the day choosing from over 25 seminars covering a wide range of topics. An afternoon modified-day was also offered with the ability to earn 3.25 learning units. In addition, students from area colleges and universities joined us to hear Harry M. Falconer, Jr., IDP Director from NCARB, speak on the changes and steps necessary to achieve licensure and how to get the most out of your career in architecture. Our keynote speaker, Jimenez Lai of Bureau Spectacular and faculty member at UCLA, gave a thought provoking presentation on "Narratives of Architecture". Mr. Lai's independent spirit was inspirational, and the audience appreciated his commitment to the artistic and creative side of architecture. Throughout the day, over eighty companies and manufacturers were on hand to showcase new products in the building and architectural fields. We had many new exhibitors with a diverse array of product categories that were of great interest. We look forward to a continued partnership with all exhibitors to exchange new developments and information throughout the industry. 26 | Licensed Architect | Winter 2015
