The AIA National Small Firm Exchange (AIA SFx) has an opening for a New Jersey State Representative for 2022 and beyond. Interested AIA NJ members in good standing may apply through the end of October. The link to the application is HERE.
The mission of the AIA Small Firm Exchange (SFx) is to advance the mutual interests of architects practicing in small firms. The objectives of the AIA SFx are three-fold:
1. Advocate the value of small firms, the national SFx, and local
SFx groups, both within the AIA and to the public.
2. Curate and disseminate the most pertinent resources and
information, from the AIA & elsewhere, that benefit small firms.
3. Inform the AIA of current issues facing small firms and areas
in which current resources/information are lacking.
Approximately 75% of all firms within the AIA are small firms (10 employees or less), which equates to 14,288 small firms within the organization.
~25% = sole practitioners = 4,750
~35% = 1-5 employees = 6,650
~15% = 5-10 employees = 2,850
We need to find ways to leverage that size for collaboration and influence, just like the individual large firms do. Find more info on the AIA SFx HERE.
To apply for the position, click HERE and complete the application by the end of October.
