Emerging Professionals

The Emerging Professionals Network of Vermont is a component of AIA Vermont.  The EPN serves local emerging professionals by representation on the AIA Vermont 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.

PROGRAMS: 

Meetups & Discussions:

2012-Present: An ongoing series of social meetings happen throughout the state.  These more often then not occur at local breweries. If you would like to organize your own meetup or find ones near you contact us via e-mail or Facebook.
