2020 Legislative Day on the Hill

Join architects from across the state will meet with their legislators and key officials in Nashville to advocate for the profession and the built environment! Save the date and join us on Tennessee’s Capitol Hill. This is a day that you won’t want to miss! Online registration is now open.

Mentoring the next generation of architects as advocates…please identify at least one Emerging Professional from your office and invite them to join you, so they can learn about the legislative process from you! We have a special rate just for Associates and EPs licensed less than two years.

Please allow time to park, walk over to the Tennessee State Capitol. There are two ways to enter: 1. Through the Motlow Tunnel at the entrance on at 600 Charlotte Ave, or 2. Through the tunnel in the Cordell Hull Building (where the legislative offices are located).
