Section Happy Hours: Know Before You Go

As part of the 2020 AIA Practice + Design Conference, we are hosting virtual happy hours with every section in the state from 4-5 p.m. on Thursday, October 15. Register now and see what’s in store for each section:


With hosts Director Ignacio Correa-Ortiz, Greg Behlen, and Jeos Oreamuno

Tune in as we kick off with introductions and housekeeping notes, host a few talent shows, and break out into small groups to discuss the conference and action items when we get back to our firms. Enjoy a little Monty Python humor, a Negroni-making workshop, and a chance to network with fellow Denver colleagues.


With hosts Director Rob Pyatt, Janna Ferguson, and Ryan Wakat

After introductions, we’ll dive into an informal design competition! Bring a 3×5 notecard or something similar for a fun activity with your fellow North section members. The event will also include casual conversation with plenty of time to network.


With hosts Director Sarah Broughton, Justin Rounsefell, and Jenny Narrod

  1. Wear your favorite hat!
  2. Be prepared to introduce yourself and talk about your goals for Q4
  3. Enjoy a little guided cocktail mixology, with easy at-home ingredients. Everyone needs lemon and honey, then choose from seltzer, vodka, or bourbon—and rosemary if you have it!
  4. Move onto a casual business chat, before ending with a fun round of…
  5. Pictionary!


With hosts Director Sheva Willoughby, JP Arnold, and Kenneth Thomas

After introductions and updates on Bylaws amendments, participate in a fun ink-sketch activity with judging and prizes to follow. You’ll also have the chance to participate in local Colorado Springs architecture trivia, with plenty of time to network with colleagues old and new.
