Call for Facility Tours

The Pacific Northwest Region is excited to announce that we are soliciting proposals for school tours, for projects in Oregon and SW Washington during our Regional Conference, set for April 23-26, 2020 at The Nines in Portland, OR. While our focus is K-12 schools, we're also very interested in receiving submittals for other learning environments that are inspirational and may potentially influence the approach to K-12 school design. Types of tours can vary – our membership has expressed interest in touring buildings under construction, as well as finished buildings. Be creative!

Deadline for proposals: December 1, 2019

Call for Heroes!

The Heroes within us theme of the PNW 2020 conference will highlight regional Hero stories from each Chapter. We invite you to submit individuals or groups who have done something extraordinary and made a difference in improving places where children learn. We are looking for Heroes in our schools, students, teachers, administrators, board members, parents, community members, AEC professionals, trades and product representatives. The 2020 conference will celebrate the advancement of education by the effort of many diverse people. Heroes will be featured on the web site and at the conference with social media and displays.

Mentors Needed

Would you like to share your knowledge of architecture, engineering, and construction with middle school students and helps shape their understanding of what our built environment in the future could be like? The Oregon and Southwest Washington Chapter is looking for volunteers to be mentors for middle school students in the Metro area as they participate in the SchoolsNEXT Design Competition, which challenges student teams to design their “school of the future”. Mentors will work directly with students and their teachers, and can volunteer for as much time as they are able. Planning, design, construction and operations knowledge in all fields and skills are welcome. The competition starts in Fall and concludes with the Chapter competition in March. This is a great opportunity to educate our sustainability leaders of the future! Contact Robert Allen for more information.
