Message from the AIA-NJ President

Dear Valued Members of AIA‐NJ

I am excited to announce that on October 25, 2012 The New Jersey Society of Architects is presenting a seminar on The Business and Ethics of Architecture. I believe this to be the first seminar ever of its kind to be given here in New Jersey. It has been developed and brought to you, by the leadership of AIA‐NJ. Having come about as a result of inquiries from members with questions like:

  • What do I need to know about starting a practice?
  • How do I actually make a profit?
  • How do I establish a budget for my office?
  • What is the value of an architect?

Having a keen understanding of what it takes for you to operate a financially responsive business is vital for the stability and growth of a sound practice and to our profession as a whole.  For those of you who have been in practice, working for a firm, or are contemplating taking the leap of faith as a sole practitioner this seminar is imperative.  The number of new architects going into their own practice is on the rise due in part to the economy, surely they will benefit from this seminar in these hard times.

As architects, we are not only designers and artists: we are business professionals as well. Many, if not most of us, came into this profession so we could establish our own practice; build our own profession and future. The Business and Ethics of Architecture program is being offered to you in order to:

  1. Strengthen your business savvy.
  2. Understand what the state laws of professional practice require of you.
  3. Gain a greater understanding of ethics and the law.
  4. Develop the confidence you need to: acquire new work, target the clients you want, and control the interview for potential new clients.

Having the abilities to know when to tell a client “yes, we can make this happen” or “no, I’m sorry I cannot work with you” are priceless skills. Also, understanding the workings of a business model and learning how to develop an efficient budget will help enable you to pay your expenses, give your employees better compensation, and actually make a profit for the professional services you deliver.

We have hand‐picked our speakers, some of whom are architects who have MBA degrees others are specialists in their field of business expertise. The Ethics and legal requirements will be presented by Lawrence Powers, Counsel for AIA‐NJ. You will be totally amazed what the law requires of you the architect.

Sign up today, this seminar is not scheduled to be given again for several years. Come early, you would not want to miss our keynote speaker who will set the course of the day with a highly charged and motivated talk. Turn your practice around to be profitable. If you are on the verge of starting a practice this course is for you. Come and say hello, I look forward to seeing your there.

Visit our AIA-NJ.org website to sign up today.

Remember its Thursday, October 25, 2012 at The Somerset Holiday Inn, Somerset, NJ Registration is at 8:15 AM with a light breakfast and lunch included. Also you will be happy to know that you will be getting 7 HSW Learning Credits.
