If you were asked, you could probably come up with a name or a face of someone who helped guide you, formally or informally, through your early years of architectural practice.  Perhaps it was a supervisor for you or your first boss, a previous professor or a friend of a friend.  We all know how important those relationships have been for our career and even personal development.

Return the favor--we invite you to influence the next generation of architects by adding your name to our list of potential future mentors for our local emerging professionals, from new grads to seasoned interns new to the area.  If you think you can spare time for coffee, lunch, or a site visit every now and then, please consider adding your name to the list.  Please send an email to Megan at if you’re interested or have more questions.  We (AIAGR) have no specific plans in place but are simply creating a list of potential mentors for the next time we are contacted.
