Join us as the TORCH Mentorship Program convenes a distinguished panel of Fellows and emerging practitioners to discuss the business side of design. This session will take the form of a moderated conversation between FAIAs and notable young firms as they share lessons, insight, and personal stories on the challenges of starting their own practice, on why certain designers might be attracted to such a path, and on how effective entrepreneurship can be in helping you chart your professional course.

The TORCH Mentorship program partners emerging professionals and AIA Fellows over the course of the year to share personal strategies and paths to success in the architecture profession.
