Southwest Iowa Architects Section (SWIAS)


The Omaha Post and the South West Iowa Chapter of the American Institute of Architects have developed a strong relationship through shared interest in professional development for members of both organizations. Monthly “Dine and Discover” sessions, originated through the AIA, are now co-sponsored by the Omaha Post. Product vendors complete the requirements for AIA accreditation on technical topics similar to presentations many of you may have experienced in your own communities. The emergence of the SAME/AIA alliance has energized the leadership of both organizations resulting in exploration of other educational (and social) opportunities.

In 2015, the groups participated in a site visit to the Henry Doorly Zoo to visit their most recent addition, a $73M 28-acre African Grasslands project. Group pictured above.
