Emerging Professionals

The AIA Potomac Valley Emerging Professionals Committee provides students of architecture, interns, and associate architects support, programs, and services that further their advancement in the field of architecture. The committee offers practical support toward licensure (see A.R.E. resources) as well networking and mentoring opportunities before and after licensure to help young architects become fully engaged in the local design community.

Intern Development Program (IDP)

The National Council of Architecture Registration Boards (NCARB) is responsible for establishing, interpreting and enforcing the Intern Development Program (IDP) and architecture training requirements. The objective of IDP is to fill the gap between academic instruction and licensed practiced. The IDP training requirement establishes levels of training in important areas of architectural practice. The AIA web site offers a number of resource highlights and information to assist AIA Associate members and interns in their continuing education. For additional information about IDP training requirements and NCARB Council Record application procedures, visit the NCARB web site.

Emerging Professionals Companion: An Online Resource

Developed by AIA and NCARB, The Emerging Professionals Companion (EPC) is an online resource for emerging professionals that supports the intern in the IDP process, particularly in gaining credit. The EPC is updated for current practice models and expanded to include the varied paths that an intern or licensed architect may consider during his or her career in architecture. Designed to increase support, involvement, and mentoring of firms, supervisors and mentors, all members of the profession can participate in learning opportunities provided by the EPC. The EPC is free to NCARB record holders. Sign up and learn more!

If you have any questions, would like to discuss IDP, or need help, please contact your local or state coordinator listed below.
