IN LIEU OF Lunch

Wednesdays at noon | starting April 1st (not kidding!)
Precisely at the halfway bark each week, AIA Mississippi invites you to a midweek dose of optimism as we break bread together (virtually). We’ll gather questions in advance and post so members can join, ready to share their experiences.

Grab some takeout from your closest locally owned restaurant. We’ll have a moment where we display their logos and get a screenshot for our digital outlets so THAT’S YOUR HOMEWORK.
