Hello AIA Associate members:
Click here for a map with the contact information and the location for the emerging professionals representing you in the Ohio Valley Region. Please use this as a tool and conduit to reach out and communicate with them. In the next few months, I plan on hosting several conference calls with these leaders representing you and how we can better assist the membership.
The regional convention is in Louisville, Kentucky this year. Please mark your calendars for September 19-21, 2013 where we can hopefully meet in person. The convention theme is "Transitions: Architecture in a Time of Change." This is a pivotal time for Emerging Professionals. Our profession is in a state of transition. EP's are transitioning from school to firms, maybe to alternative paths in the profession, from interns to leaders in the firm, maybe to sole proprietors, going through the IDP process and sitting for the ARE, firm leaders are retiring, the AIA National Repositioning, etc, etc, etc.
In the meantime, please think about how we can better serve you, the associate membership and emerging professionals at the local, state, regional and national level. Please think about if there is something I can do for you at the regional or national level. I hope this graphic helps put a name to a face to a location.
Special thanks to:
-Chad Ramkey of Phillips|Sekanick Architects for creating the graphic
-Sarah Markley for creating a contact list for Ohio
-The NAC for providing the idea of using a map/ graphic
Thank you for your time.
