The P.R.I.C.E. of Change | 2021 Virtual Conference on Architecture

Our 2021 Conference theme, “The PRICE of Change” will key in on the: Pandemic | Racial Inequity | Climate | Economy.

Through dynamic speakers, breakout sessions, and virtual tours, we’ll tackle these topics and challenge each conference attendee to ask themselves “what PRICE am I willing to pay to truly become a change agent in my profession and to society holistically?”

Thank you to our Conference Committee members for their hard work and dedication to providing TN members access to nationally renowned speakers, amazing tours and education during a year of CHANGE!
