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!

Click here to view submission requirements and to submit your proposal.

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.
