Emerging Professionals Committee

Our mission is to provide an opportunity for discussion and growth for young architectural professionals as they work towards licensure, along with relevant resources for continued development after registration. To foster a strong network of multi-disciplinary members and non-members and promote the value of architecture through its impact in the community.
