CMD Insight for Architects


Working Abroad: Pros, Cons, and Ways Forward in Utah!
By Derek Washam, Manager, Federal & International Programs

Have you wanted to learn more about how to expand your practice abroad, but haven’t been able to make it to our workshops in D.C. or Los Angeles? On February 21, the AIA and AIA Utah will be presenting Working Abroad: Pros, Cons, and Ways Forward in Salt Lake City. The afternoon workshop will feature local architects experienced in navigating the international markets, as well as the Department of Commerce and other government agencies who will brief you on the numerous federal resources. Both panels will be able to provide you with knowledge that will help you succeed anywhere overseas, no matter if it is in Asia, the Americas, Africa, or Europe.

India and Brazil will serve as a catalyst for discussion, as they provide interesting case studies for any international work due to their growing economies, expanding middle classes, and different business cultures. Attendees will learn about business opportunities in these countries and other international markets; resources provided by the Federal government; and how to best use those resources. Problems that can occur while working abroad, how business practices differ from the United States, and how to comply with foreign laws will also be topics of discussion.

 The event will be hosted from 1pm-3pm at the Utah State Capitol in the Spruce Room of East Senate Building, 350 North State Street, Salt Lake City, UT 84114. For questions or registration, please email Derek Washam, Manager of Federal & International Programs.
