The AIA Austin Leadership Collective began in 2018 to support the growth of all AIA Austin members. Program content builds on the successes of similar leadership programs at other AIA chapters and aims to complement existing AIA offerings in Texas. Monthly sessions provide professional development training on a broad range of communication and leadership topics and varies 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.



The mission of this program is to support visionary, diverse leadership for a more sustainable, equitable future in our profession, and to nurture new, inspired leaders at AIA Austin. The AIA Austin Leadership Collective aims to catalyze change by cultivating emerging professionals with the necessary support and guidance as the next generation of leaders to achieve successes in their professional careers, pioneer new endeavors, and grow community partnerships.

Applications for the Leadership Collective class of 2019 will be accepted in mid November.
