Under the leadership of UCM alumna Alix Calon, who was president of the UCM chapter of AIBD during the 2015-16 and 2016-17 school years, AIBD held the first annual UCM Build and Design Day at UCM in March 2016. Calon coordinated the event, bringing students together with professionals in the residential design industry to network. The UCM chapter also hosted the event in April 2017.
The annual event is available to all UCM students, as well as students invited to attend from regional high schools, technical colleges and universities. The goal of the conference is to reach all students interested in or currently pursuing a degree in architectural drafting and technology, interior design, construction management, and engineering.
