PROGRAM SUMMARY

AIA Austin is launching the AIA Austin Leadership Collective—a new program to support the growth of all AIA Austin members. Program content will build on the successes of similar leadership programs at other AIA chapters and will aim to complement existing AIA offerings in Texas. Monthly sessions will provide professional development training on a broad range of communications and leadership topics and will vary in delivery to promote both sharing of expert knowledge and opportunities for deliberate practice. Joint sessions open to allied member groups in engineering and construction will foster interaction across professions to strengthen participants’ networks and learned skills.


AUDIENCE

The intended audience of the program will be all AIA emerging professionals, with a preference given to those who have worked 3 to 7 years in the field. The class of 20 participants will be selected in order to achieve as diverse of a group as possible in the knowledge and insight they bring to the table.


TIME COMMITTMENT

The program consists of:

(1) retreat January 26th/27th (Friday evening + half day Saturday)

(7) half day seminars to be held (February – October)

Participants will be required to hold (7) Ambassador Sessions. These should occur between program seminars. As an Ambassador, participants will share the information with other interested professionals in their own firm or professional network.

Each participant is allowed (1) excused absence (excluding initial retreat). Upon second absence, participants will withdraw from the program.


TUITION AND FUNDING

Tuition is $500 per participant and covers luncheons, administrative fees, and other miscellaneous meeting expenses. Half scholarships are available to 4 participants from small firms (5 or fewer) or who are sole proprietors.
