In this world of carbon footprints and ecological impacts, we must ask ourselves how our actions influence others. Do we make choices that positively impact our environment and those around us? In terms of professional development, are we leading by example? From the initial decision to pursue licensure in a proactive manner to the commitment to serve the profession on multiple levels, there are opportunities to lead by example around every corner. Join us in a panel discussion focused on licensure and leadership. We will meet and hear from three architects who are serving the profession in very different capacities. Each of their career paths is unique. Panelists include: one of the Assistant Directors of the Intern Development Program at NCARB, and the AIA Resource Architect focused on emerging professionals. The panel is rounded out by a young practitioner whose proactive involvement in the licensure process contributed to her firm winning the IDP Firm award and her recent selection to serve on the IDP Committee for NCARB. There will be a short presentation by each of the panelists, followed by an interactive discussion on licensure and leadership.
