Professional Development Seminar

Registration is now open for the day-long 2014 Professional Development Seminar: Business Foundations beginning at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 19, at the PPA Event Center (2105 Decatur St, Denver, CO 80211). This seminar delivers the training designers need most to help their firms run at the highest levels of productivity, focus, quality and efficiency. Download the flyer.

The idea that architects need not be trained in the nuances of business or finance is now obsolete. In fact, contemporary practice has shown that business acumen and management know-how across all levels of the organization now play a key role in the success of an architectural practice. It’s not business as usual.
