2014 Emerging Professionals Summit

It’s the year 2033; what role are architects playing in society? Will you be prepared to play your part? If not, what changes need to happen now to better position you and fellow architects for the future? This scenario is just a snapshot of the issues that were addressed at the 2014 Emerging Professionals Summit. Read more about the event >>

As a result of Summit discussion the AIA conducted two phases of an Intern Titling Survey earlier this year. Phase 1 asked for recommendations to replace the term “intern” and Phase 2 was conducted to refine the alternate terms and better understand the profession’s perspective on the use of the word intern. The AIA is working to Change the Word and Respect the Work of the rising generation in architecture. Learn more >>



The Event

In January, the AIA brought together thought leaders from across the profession to address how practice culture can be shaped to prepare current and future architects for their role in society. Participants included students, emerging professionals, business leaders, firm owners, academics, entrepreneurs, and collateral representatives. The Summit will expand upon the AIA Emerging Professionals strategic initiative to develop action plans for the Institute and identify additional stakeholders to respond to the shifting education, professional development, career path, and societal role of architects.
