SATURDAY, MAY 4


AIA Golf Tournament
Grove Park Inn Golf Course
7:30 a.m.–2 p.m.
Fee: $275
$75 for golf club rental (if required)

Donald Ross originally designed this historic course in 1926, and it was overhauled in 2001 to keep the same feel and spirit. It has since earned nods from Conde Nast Traveler (Top 20 Southern U.S. Golf Resorts in 2011) and North Carolina Golf Panel (Top 100 Golf Courses in the State). The 6,400-yard championship course has been played by PGA stars Bobby Jones, Ben Hogan and Jack Nicklaus and even President Obama. Feel a sense of pride and accomplishment after navigating the tree-lined fairways and bent greens with amazing views of the Blue Ridge Mountains all around. Elevated tee boxes on the par-70 course provide perfect sight lines for each drive.

All males must wear a shirt with a collar (either traditional or mock) with sleeves. Acceptable clothing includes shorts, slacks, blouses, skirts and shirts. Non-acceptable clothing includes all denim, athletic shorts, tank tops and halter-tops.

AIA Sporting Clays Tournament
Cleghorn Gun Club
8:30 a.m.–2:30 p.m.
Fee: $200.00
The sporting clays course was designed and outfitted by nationally renowned sporting clay course designers, Rick Hemingway and Heyward Cunningham. The course consists of 15 stations with four traps per station allowing for a two course (Blue and Gold) layout with target trajectories strategically positioned for every shooter level. The design and layout of the course has beautifully incorporated the topographic character and natural flow of the surrounding land.

The fee includes a lunch following the tournament.

AIA New Member/First-Timer Reception

This by invitation only event gives first-time AIA attendees the chance to mingle with each other, advocate their companies, and introduce themselves to the current AIA Board of Directors in a more intimate setting.

Opening Reception

SUNDAY, MAY 5


Education Sessions (CIE Session)
8 a.m.–5 p.m.
If you are looking for a great program to fill continuing education requirements by your state, look no further.

Also, some (but not all) courses will be approved for continuing legal education credits in some states.

All attendees are encouraged to attend; however, if you need these CIE session credits to remain in good standing with your state, a $50 fee applies.

If you need CLE credits to remain in good standing with your state, a $100 fee applies.

Please note that not all states are approved to provide credit. Please check your state listing at www.aiaweb.org to see which states have been contacted for CIE approval.
