The Emerging Professionals Network of Vermont is a component of AIA Vermont, and serves local emerging professionals by representation on the AIA VT Board of Directors, while in turn educating members about important developments within the design and construction industry. The EPN also serves a larger purpose by organizing events and projects that bring together students, young designers and experienced architects, in order to promote architecture and good design in our community.
EPNVT is in its 3rd year of existence. In 2012, we coordinated the design, construction and operation of the AIA New England People's Choice Awards pavilion at the BCA Firehouse gallery. Last year, we launched our 1st annual design competition with the 'Farm-to-Fork Stand' and exhibited the work at the Waitsfield farmer's market. Our 2nd annual competition ‘Engaging the Public Library’ is currently under way with the award ceremony and exhibition to be held at this year’s AIAVT/CSI Conference in June. 2014 also brings the continuation of the new Architecture & Design Film Series located in Burlington that engages, provokes and inspires the Vermont community by exploring the impact and importance of design and beauty in our lives.
We’re excited to continue these community building endeavors and look forward to collaborating with you.
