Program Description

*Zoom* AIA Small Firm Exchange

Please join Matthew Clapper, AIA, 2021 SFx Chair, and Bruce Sekanick, FAIA, to discuss the Small Firm Exchange. The Small Firm Exchange is an AIA Member Group that was founded in 2005 to represent the needs and concerns of all AIA members who own or work in a small firm. A small firm is defined by having 10 or fewer employees and this contingent makes up roughly 75% of all firms in the U.S. In this course, you will learn more about small firm data, how the SFx is organized, initiatives it has undertaken to help small firms, and ways that you can become involved with the SFx at local, state, and national levels.

Register by June 28 at 4pm to attend.
