The Business of Architecture is designed to provide architects with essential career tools for managing a prosperous practice. Whether you’re looking to take on more responsibility within your current firm, or interested in starting your own practice, this series will equip you with the necessary skills to set yourself apart.
The series (six sessions total) covers all facets of firm management and development. Each session in the series builds on the last and will culminate with the opportunity for you to create a business and/or personal plan that you can use going forward. For this reason, participation in the entire series is encouraged, however registration for individual sessions is an option.
Each half-day session will include highly interactive presentations and panel discussions, as well as group and individual work assignments. Each session will provide four continuing education credits (AIA LU’s).
