The Award:
AIANYS recognizes firms annually for a period of one year, for their dedication to fostering emerging professionals as they advance their careers. We distinguish firms who offer great support and opportunities to their Emerging Professionals (EP)- defined by the AIA as a student, recent graduate or architect licensed within the last 10 years.

The recognition award will be given to the firms that achieve a minimum score after submitting the application for evaluation. The applicant firm must confirm that it complies with the policies and activities listed in the application form.

Principles for Evaluation:
Licensing Process
Professional Development
Support and Compensation

Entry to the recognition award is free for all NYS registered firms. Principal(s) must be AIANYS members. Once the AIANYS EP Committee completes the evaluation of the applications, those firms that achieve the minimum score will be recognized at the AIANYS Design Awards Luncheon on November 8. In addition, the NYS EP website will list the 2019 Firms Fostering Emerging Professionals. If particular excellence is exhibited with one firm, we will award one (1) “Outstanding Firm Fostering EP’s”. The recognition award will be valid for a period of one (1) year, after which a reapplication is required for continued designation.

Instructions to Applicants:
All questions in the application must be checked. It is mandatory that the application must be signed by submitted by a firm’s Principal and a representative Emerging Professional (both must be AIANYS members).
