The Emerging Professionals Committee of AIA Buffalo/WNY looks to foster architectural licensure in the State of New York and to support professional development within the local design community.
Although the focus is to address the needs and interests of emerging professionals of architectural background, membership and participation is open to everyone in the Western New York area regardless of AIA affiliation.
JOIN US FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT, NETWORKING AND VOLUNTEERING OPPORTUNITIES.
See the Chapter's SCHEDULE for information on upcoming committee events.
Sessions discuss testing strategies and provide support in accordance with NCARB's policies. Each session focuses on a different section of the ARE.
Local EPs periodically gather in a social setting. Events are sometimes coordinated with other professional groups in the area.
Students and professionals have the opportunity to receive feedback on their resume and portfolio materials from hiring managers at local firms.
Groups volunteer at various local charities to give back to the community.
