Julie Ann Engh, Assoc. AIA | Notes of Interest

Julie’s many volunteer commitments to AIA New York, AIA New York State, and others are directed at two primary goals: to communicate the value of architecture to the public and promote licensure for young professionals. She is committed to the future of the profession and a champion of Associate issues.

As an active volunteer with the Emerging New York Architects (ENYA) committee, Julie plans, organizes, and hosts a variety of public programs and events to benefit emerging professionals. In her commitment to provide young professionals with licensing resources, she has been instrumental in helping create AIANY’s “Demystifying the ARE” program and other events. As an Associate director for AIANYS, she helps other Associate directors throughout the state locate and acquire ARE resources and facilitates sharing of information and best practices among chapters. As a result of her creativity, leadership, and outreach, Associate participation and involvement of emerging professionals have fueled the chapter’s membership growth.

Perhaps her greatest success has been her work on AIANY’s Architectural Tourism Committee (ATC). In 2010 she was one of a small group who responded to the chapter’s call to develop an Around Manhattan Architectural Boat Tour. From the initial offering of 16 tours in 2010, more than 200 tours were scheduled for 2013, and a second vessel was added to accommodate ticket demand. As one of the most respected and sought-after docents on the tours, Julie has staked out new ground for the interaction of design professionals with the public. Her informed, witty, and comprehensive narrative has achieved consistently high marks on Internet evaluations. She has also helped the ATC develop a variety of other tours, including walking tours, single-building tours, and specialty tours requested by other organizations. In recognition of her efforts, she received a 2012 Vice Presidential Certificate of Excellence for Public Outreach from AIANY.
