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

Are you thinking about the future of your career but having trouble visualizing it? Does the path to Principal seem too long to plan for?

Join the Emerging Professionals Network (EPNet) to learn more about what the transition from "emerging" to "mid-career" professional might look like. A panel of mid-career professionals (those with ten to 15 years of experience) will speak candidly about the steps they took to advance their positions, the challenges they faced, and the opportunities they created within their firms and their extracurricular activities.

Come prepared with questions to ask the moderated panel, and look forward to networking before and after the discussion.

Success Teams offer the opportunity to learn from and share with your peers and future colleagues. Formed at quarterly kickoffs, teams are largely self-structured. Teams coordinate meeting times and locations and study together, sharing resources and tips, and keeping each other on track. Each member pledges to meet with and support their team members through the completion of their exam series. A library of both Brightwood (formerly Kaplan) 5.0 study materials is available at the BSA offices for team members to borrow.

Pre-registration is required for this event.
