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

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 Kaplan 4.0 and 5.0 study materials is available at the BSA offices for team members to borrow.

Come to this kickoff to sign up and save your spot—or spots—for this year’s round of Leadership Lunches!

Through the BSA Emerging Professionals Network (EPNet), Leadership Lunches pair postgraduate or recently licensed professionals with firm leaders for casual one-hour lunches. It's a one-of-a-kind opportunity to sample different firm cultures, create connections for long-term mentoring, meet other future leaders, and learn about practice, including business-related topics first hand.
