Emerging Professionals Network / back to Committee page »

The BSA Emerging Professionals Network (EPNet) is an active social and professional network. Geared specifically toward recent graduates, Architectural Experience Program™ (AXP™) participants, young architects, designers, and other design/build professionals, EPNet hosts tours, presentations, firm visits, and other programs. It hosts regular planning meetings, which all interested professionals are encouraged to attend, and a number of programs throughout the year. Annual programs include: the Winter Warmer, a mixer for emerging professionals across AEC disciplines; a spring bootcamp series in several parts drilling down on a single theme of professional development;  and Leadership Lunches, the opportunity to visit area firms in small groups for conversation with principals and firm leadership. Anyone building their AEC career is welcome to join, connect, and contribute.

Keep the conversation going on social media! @BSAAIA #EPNet

The second in a series of three programs, this session focuses on personal marketing—a big part of which is networking. Some people thrive meeting new people and making conversation; others dread it. No matter what your feelings are, everyone can agree that connecting with others is an intangible but essential part of building your professional network and, often, seeking your next opportunity. Join this program for a presentation on marketing for the individual, followed by a mock networking session with your peers.
