Organized by the AIANY Marketing and Communications Committee, this event is part of the AIANY Summer Practice Series, a summer-long series of weekly programs that focus on the challenges of small- to medium-sized firms and how to market your practice. Join us for this morning program at Steelcase where we will learn how to get published in magazines, books, and other print media. We will also explore ways to put together a successful application for design awards. The event will provide tools and resources to form a network of small firm principals and business consultants who can offer support in building and marketing your business.
