Emerging Professionals


Mission Statement:
The Emerging Professionals (formerly The Emerging Architects Committee) is a committee within the Connecticut Chapter of the American Institute of Architects that promotes education, networking and community involvement for Associate level members, architectural interns and newly licensed architects.

About Us:
The Emerging Professionals of the Connecticut Chapter of the American Institute of Architects is a committee that serves Associate AIA members, architectural interns and newly licensed architects in an effort to promote the development of flourishing architects.  Members of the Emerging Architecture Community create relationships within local communities through volunteer work at various events, such as Habitat for Humanity, Box City and CANstruction©.  As a professional committee, this group also hosts social networking events across the state to unite emerging architects with their peers and members of related organizations.  Members can access educational literature to aid in the successful completion of the Architect Registration Examinations. The Emerging Professionals believes in preparing today’s younger generation of architects to become tomorrow’s leaders.
