The annual convention offered various seminars and tours for attendees, for James Evrard attending the annual convention meant more than sitting in a room and taking notes. This year James experienced the morning tours and continuing education classes. Some of the classes and seminars gave him refreshers on commonplace practice and current standards, while others explored small firm needs, \u201cIt was nice to focus on the things I want to do besides the fun things and then the educational knowledge-based items too."]]],[1,"p",[[0,[],0,"\u201dOne morning he attended the tour: "],[0,[0],1,"The Good, The Bad, and The Spolia"],[0,[],0," that covered the development of downtown Las Vegas. The following day another tour was in the same area, but explored the Las Vegas arts district, \u201cIt was nice being in the same area\u2026to see different things that I got hits of the other day, but then actually [got] to go in and get on top of."]]],[1,"p",[[0,[],0,"\u201dWhen asked if everyone should attend the conference, without hesitation, he responded, \u201cAbsolutely.\u201d The conference allows architects of all stages of their careers to meet and interact with each other, from recent grads to those on the brink of retirement. It also acts, as James put it, as a reunion of sorts. During this year\u2019s conference, James was able to reconnect with former colleagues and bosses. \u201cIt\u2019s refreshing that everyone is doing well\u2026it\u2019s nice to catch up in an instant because the familiarity is there with the like-minded passion everyone has for architecture.\u201d"]]]]}
