Introduction of the Texas AEA

These were all great goals and I wanted to bring this level of professionalism to Texas. In this state there is a vibrant community of Texas professionals, vendors and consortiums offers thought leadership, visions for the future, and proven practices based on reality of today. Building on the Global AEA Texas has the following objectives:

This chapter will strive to have the following characteristics to ensure a vibrant and highly interactive community forum. We will be…

  • Regular. With quarterly and monthly meetings starting first in Austin, TX and then branching out to Houston, Dallas and San Antonio.
  • Impactful. Through full day events we hope to draw in top speakers in the architecture community.
  • Highly Interactive . These meetings and events focus first on the community and take the best from a conferences and a user groups.
  • High Quality. The key to a vibrant and sustainable community is to make sure there is high quality discussions and interactions.

We have been lucky with some top notch sponsorship support and I would like to personally thank all these vendors for helping to make this happen! With out your support it would be difficult for us to get this moving.
