AIA CENTRAL STATES REGION

AIA Central States Region EP Friendly Firms
To get started, it helps to lay some groundwork for which firms are eligible and exactly what defines an Emerging Professional. An Emerging Professional (EP) is defined by the AIA as a student, recent graduate or architect licensed within the last 10 years. Please include part time and full time staff in your responses to the following questions. All architecture firms that have an office in the Central States Region and are AIA member firms are eligible to apply. 

T he AIA Central States Region (CSR) is composed of Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and Oklahoma. Within the Central States Region the EP Committee annually awards 'Emerging Professional Friendly' status to firms who display an outstanding commitment to the development of their EP Staff. This is an excellent opportunity for firms in the Central States Region to showcase their commitment to Emerging Professionals. There is no charge to apply, only your firm's dedication to this effort.
