Future Leaders Fellowship

AIAeagle_2016FELLOWSHIP FOR EMERGING LEADERS 2016
JOIN US AT CONVENTION IN PHILADELPHIA!

A LITTLE HISTORY

The AIA Board of Directors Class of 2013 selected as its name The Original 13 from the 13 Architects, led by Richard Upjohn, who founded the AIA in 1857.   We chose our class name in recognition of the AIA’s legacy, but we are all about looking to the future.

We care deeply about future generations of architects – and leaders – and want to join hands with Emerging Professionals to frame the future for our profession.

THE IDEA

Enough about us – we want to know about you! In fact, we want to meet you at the AIA Convention this May in Philadelphia. We are offering up to five fellowships in the amount of $1,000 each so that you can join us at Convention, expand your career horizons and look to the future.

HOW THIS WORKS

Send us a Tweet of Interest to tell us what you would learn by attending the Convention as an Emerging Leader. Our Class will review all Tweets and select ten finalists. These finalists will be asked to write and submit a more detailed narrative of their aspirations. Up to five Fellowship Recipients will be selected on the basis of their narratives.

Each Fellowship Recipient will be paired with Class of 2013 Board Directors during the Convention and will receive a $1,000 stipend to offset expenses. Our goal is to help each Fellowship Recipient realize his/her aspirations at Convention, and we want to get to know you personally and form lasting relationships. After Convention we will ask you to report on your experiences to share with other Emerging Leaders.

NJIT Design Showcase 2016

College of Architecture and Design Design Showcase 2016

njit_coadThe College of Architecture and Design at NJIT hosts its annual Design Showcase event in April of each year. This fundraising/networking event will be in its 10th year in 2016 and has grown into an incredible success over the years.

April 7, 2016
Weston Hall Gallery
5 – 9 pm

During the course of the evening, we provide an industry related lecture (good for CEU credits), networking between alumni and sponsors, and an exhibit showing the work of our top students which leads to internships and entry level hires in many firms.

The money raised from the event goes directly back to the students in the form of scholarships, architecture environment enhancements, and this past year the introduction of a 3D print lab which is run on a volunteer basis by our local AIAS chapter. 

This venue is an excellent opportunity to bring together current students, past students, and industry professionals. Whether an alum of NJIT or not, we would welcome any AIANJ member who would like to support the school, the students, and the growth of our program. 

Design and Disruption: Millennials in Architecture

aiany

When: 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM FRIDAY, JANUARY 22

Where: At The Center for Architecture, 536 LaGuardia Place, New York, NY 10012

Price: Free for AIA members and students with valid ID; $10 for non-members.

Description:

Until the January 2013 issue of Architect, the architectural academy and profession paid little attention to the emerging Millennial generation. Suddenly, the journal’s writers predicted “drastic changes to pedagogy, licensure and firm management,” all necessary to absorb the generation’s impact on the field, but also to avert the disruptions affecting other professions and industries that Millennial’s have helped precipitate. 

The discussion will raise this question: How can growing awareness of this generation’s traits continue to push the boundaries of architectural education and the profession? Darius Sollohub, AIA, Associate Professor of Architecture at NJIT will present the results of his research about Millennial characteristics already evident in practice and teaching. Richard Sweeney, NJIT’s University Librarian, a longtime researcher of Millennials, will join in the presentation. Together with a panel of leaders from various architectural organizations, Sollohub and Sweeney will engage in discussion about ideas and initiatives to help the architectural profession take best advantage of this next generation.

To further the discussion, we also strongly encourage you to give us five minutes to participate in the poll.
