    Any chance that this could be live streamed?  Lots of us have interest, many can't attend due to cost or other commitments. I'd even be up for some registration cost to be able to do this.

    Hello Grace Lin,

    Please allow me to introduce myself to you. I am Al Spagnolo, Founding Partner at SGA, Architects in Boston. I recently joined your Knowledge Community on Project Delivery. Our firm has a new discipline in-house that offers Virtual Design and Construction to our clients. We have achieved some very compelling milestones on a recently completed large scale mixed-use life science project in Cambridge that advancing the role of the architect in project delivery. In my opinion, what we have achieved represents a paradigm shift for our profession of architecture. I would welcome the opportunity to share these achievements with our community. In that regard, i am curious if there are plans for any upcoming AIA Symposiums? I may also be willing to start a discussion on the Knowledge Community online forum.

    I do look forward to your response and your thoughts on my out reach on this important subject.

    with kindest regards,
    Al Spagnolo

    You should check out AIA's Practice Management KC as well. They presented a webinar in 2018 and a session at A'19 on Virtual Practice.  Peter Macrae, AIA, came up with this idea 10 years ago in the wake of the 2008-2009 recession.  I can send you his email if you want to discuss.

    Sounds interesting, would love to hear more about what you are doing.  Maybe you could give a brief presentation to the PDKC advisory committee at one of our monthly calls, and follow up with a presentation to the general audience at the PDKC Symposium next year.
