Welcome to our temporary homepage while our current site is under construction. Please sign up above to participate in this program.

Our goal is to establish an organized mentorship program. Arranged through an online database, the groups will consist of small groups of members in a range of career stages. In addition to the small group mentoring, there will be a series of regular programs with speakers from fields outside of architecture, such as marketing, insurance, legal, accounting, social work, psychology, education and others. We will plan the educational programs and mentorship groups to appeal both to emerging professionals as well as other members. Please join here.
