About AIA|DC Emerging Architects Committee’s Mentoring Workshops
AIA|DC|EAC’s Mentoring Workshops bring together Emerging Professionals (architects-in-training and newly licensed) on a monthly basis to discuss topics relating to you, the practitioner. This year’s theme is “Professional and Business-minded Growth” in which we will focus on the individual, helping to gain skills such as networking, revamping your LinkedIn page, and other topics related to starting one’s own firm. Each month will cover a different topic within our theme, with plenty of time for Q+A after each session. New interns, architects, and mentors are always welcome!

Each session is held on the last Tuesday of the month, from 6-8pm at the District Architecture Center. Upcoming workshops include:

September 30 – Starting Your Own Firm: Finances + Liabilities

October 28 – Starting Your Own Firm: Marketing for Architects

To wrap up the series, there will be a networking event with our joint associations on December 8, 2015 – stay tuned!
