Western Massachusetts AIA has made great strides in the past several years to engage the greater population of intern architects and designers in the region.
On this page we list events, articles, resources and information of interest to Emerging Professionals in our area.

Through the Emerging Professionals (EP) program, any architecture student, recent graduate or architect licensed less than ten years (per the AIA’s definition of Emerging Professionals) is welcomed to participate in the events hosted by the WMAIA that provide EPs with facilitated access to resources tailored toward professional development.
Events offer a variety of opportunities for EPs to build a regional network and connect with one another, as well as to learn about and communicate with established professionals in the area.
Addressing issues and interests found to be most relevant to individuals entering into the field of architecture and design are the focus of the EP meetings which are held every 6 weeks or so at various locations in the Pioneer Valley.
