Vice President Al Gore will be partying with the American Institute of Architects (AIA) in San Antonio, Texas over Cinco de Mayo (Saturday May 5, 2007) next year as the closing keynote speaker to the AIA’s 2007 National Convention and Design Exposition. Themed with the title, “Growing Beyond Green,” the 2007 AIA Convention is an excellent stage for someone who has been an avid supporter of sustainability and the environment. The AIA is excited to have Gore present at their 2007 convention, which also happens to be a celebration of its 150 Birthday.

We are honored to have Vice President Gore, a champion of solutions to combat global warming, speak at our 2007 national convention. We are fortunate to have someone of Mr. Gore’s stature help shine a spotlight to an often overlooked element – the impact that buildings have on the health of the overall environment.
