The AAK Convention is a yearly Continuous Professional Development (CPD) event that the Association organizes. The Convention brings together hundreds of professionals from the national, regional and international built and natural environment drawn from both the private and public sectors. This year’s Convention theme – “Dignified Housing for All” is in line with the government’s key development agenda dubbed the ‘Big Four’ agenda that cites affordable housing as one of the key pillars and focus areas that the government will be handling within the next five years.

The convention has four sub areas namely:

  1. The Land Question
  2. Technology, innovation and research
  3. Wholesome housing
  4. Housing for All

Engaging sessions and breakout sessions make the AAK Convention a worthwhile and must attend for every professional and student in the built and natural environment.
