2014 Emerging Professionals Summit

Just over a year after the event, the AIA and the collateral organizations have made substantial progress on several of the findings and others have been initiated and are ongoing. The National Design Services Act (NDSA) has gained serious traction in Congress. The collateral organizations have had productive conversations on Intern Titling and Licensure Upon Graduation, and continue to move forward with both of these initiatives. In December, we created a document for the AIA Board of Directors, giving a brief overview of initiatives and events important to Emerging Professionals. We would like to share that document, the Emerging Professionals: 2014 Snapshot, with you.

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 >>

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.
