Who we are

The Committee on Design (COD) was founded to promote design excellence among members of the AIA, the broader design community, and the public at large, both nationally and internationally.

2021 and 2022 COD Conferences

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the AIA Committee on Design leadership voted to cancel the 2021 Denver conference and postpone the international conference to 2022. The domestic conference is scheduled for spring 2022 in Los Angeles and the international conference is scheduled for fall 2022.  Dates will be posted and shared once available.
