AIA|DC’s Emerging Architects Committee is pleased to announce that our very own Adam Schwartz, AIA, an associate at HGA, will be joining us for our March 23 discussion on The License Dilemma, the first installment of this year’s Architecture Uncensored series (Register via AIA|DC).
Adam Schwartz, AIA, NCARB, is an associate at HGA Architects and Engineers in Alexandria, Virginia, specializing in public/corporate work. He serves as the AIA|DC Architect Licensing Advisor and is an active member of the AIA|DC Emerging Architects Committee, serving on the EAC Communications committee and leading this year’s EAC Mentoring Workshop series, entitled “Leadership and the Emerging Architect.” Adam is currently a scholar in the 2015-2016 Christopher Kelley Leadership Development Program class, participates annually in AIA Northern Virginia Canstruction, and volunteers with the Washington Architectural Foundation. In 2015, he also helped teach the Structural Systems ARE prep course at the District Architecture Center and helped organize and raise funds for the 2015 Interschool Design Competition held at the National Building Museum.
Adam shared with us a few brief thoughts on his feelings about licensing to spark conversation for the March 23 panel:
Getting licensed early on was one of the best professional decisions I ever made, and I highly recommend getting it done as soon as possible. Putting the AREs behind me freed my life up in immeasurable ways, and I can’t stress how good it feels to finish them. I’m excited to see how the Integrated Path to architectural licensure plays out over the coming years.
