The AIA National Convention begins June 26, but if you can’t attend in person, there’s always virtual attendance. Here are two ways:

1. Whether you’re there or not keep in touch and know what’s going on by downloading the AIA Convention 2014 App. It’s free and features give you the ability to sync your schedule, search for events, bookmark favorites, interactive expo floor maps, speaker bios, networking opportunities, social media connections and more.

2. Get the event streamed to you live by registering through Facebook or Linkedin, or by creating an account with AIA.

And if you happen to be in Chicago and near the Art Institute, be sure to attend the big party Friday, June 27 from 7:30 – 10 p.m.
