Initiatives

What is the RAIC-EP doing to connect emerging practitioners across Canada?

 

ExAC and PRACTICE SUPPORT

Our first initiative to help support Intern Architects in preparing for the ExAC was the organization of a National Building Code Webinar in Fall 2016.  We will be offering the National Building Code Webinar again in 2017 – Stay tuned for more details!

We are also offering a webinar on Bidding, Contract Negotiation and Contract Administration this year. More details coming soon!

We have also started research on areas of need for future support initiatives which will include reading lists, study groups, and prep material. Contact us to let us know what areas of support you feel are priorities and any ways in which you might want to help out!


COMPETITIONS

Recognizing the urge of emerging practitioners to flex their design muscles following graduation, RAIC EP is committed to the organization of nationwide design competitions. Past examples include the Urban Marker competition and a competition to design the RAIC-EP logo (Learn more here). 

 

RAIC FESTIVAL

In addition to holding the RAIC EP Annual General Meeting during the RAIC Festival, RAIC-EP organizes events to connect emerging practitioners from across Canada in attendance at the festival. Learn more.

In 2017, for the third year in a row, we are preparing a Con-Ed session focused on issues faced by interns and other emerging practitioners. Stay tuned for more information on this year’s presentation.
