Did January feel like it lasted about 62 days for anyone else?  Snow, snow days, bitter cold, the flu.  Well, if January was all about hibernation, February’s events are sure to get you out of your office.  There are some great opportunities to hear inspiring speakers, and then, your chance to STEP into the sun and take some solar training for design professionals.  Also, in case you didn’t know, if you want to plan your own event, the AIA Pittsburgh offices are now available for rent (and not just in February, this is ongoing).
