If you’re in DC this spring, come check out the EP Exhibit in person, on display until the end of April at AIA HQ! 

The Emerging Professionals of the Monterey Bay Chapter of the AIA seeks to be the collective voice and source of information and support, regarding career development for those in the early stages of their architectural career. The Emerging Professionals committee represents three core constituencies within our Chapter: Young Architects (licensed 10 years or less), Associates (unlicensed members) and Students.

The Emerging Professionals are currently represented on our local Board of Directors by Stephen Lyon. To contact Stephen, check out his information in the Chapter Directory, under Associates. (And while you’re there, please make sure your contact information is exactly as you’d like it presented!)

The committee has been based in a wide range of activities including, but not limited to:

  • Study groups and the dissemination of study material from the Chapter’s updated lending library in order to assist Associates currently taking their Architectural Registration Exams or California Supplemental Exams
  • Social events and gatherings to provide networking opportunities among fellow Emerging Professionals and to connect the local Emerging Professionals with the Chapter at large
  • Community outreach through volunteering and design activism
  • Representation of our local Emerging Professionals at both the State and National levels
