Emerging Professionals

Emerging Professionals

The Emerging Professionals Committee engages associate members and architects within their first ten years of licensure through programs and activities that encourage membership, participation, and leadership in the Chapter.

  • Professional development
  • Field trips
  • Building Tours 
  • Lectures
  • Seminars
  • Round-table discussions
  • Social Networking

The committee will provide a forum in which the specific needs of emerging professionals can be discussed and addressed. The committee will also seek young professionals in architectural firms, and distribute information to them to increase their basic understanding of the AIA.
