AIA Miami would like to show its support for Associate members through the introduction of our newest program launching this Fall 2013: the AIA Miami Mentorship Network. One of the priorities for my presidency, this program gives Associate AIA members the opportunity to be paired with an AIA Miami member who will act as his/her mentor for one year.
Based on successful mentorship programs hosted by AIA chapters nationwide, the Mentorship Network is comprised of architect mentors (AIA members) who meet periodically with architecture interns or students to share real-world experiences and life lessons, develop friendships, offer guidance and assist with the Intern Development Program (IDP). In addition to regular direct communication between mentor and mentee, the AIA Miami will also be hosting various events and opportunities that will allow for group interaction.
I invite you to take advantage of this valuable program by filling out the attached survey and returning it to AIA Miami via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. This survey will assist us in connecting you with an AIA member with similar interests and background. We are looking forward to pairing mentors with Associate AIA members quickly. Space is limited so participation will be on a “first come first serve” basis.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call Cheryl Jacobs, AIA Miami Executive Director at 305.448.7488 or Michelle M. Bilbao, Chair of the AIA Miami Mentorship Committee at 305.438.0609.
I am very excited about the launch of the AIA Miami Mentorship Network and strongly encourage you to participate. If you are interested, please take a moment to fill out and return the attached survey.
Send us your newsworthy topics, awards, pictures and other groovy stuff! We want to post it on Facebook and Tweet it out! So, share! Send it to: email@example.com!

During childhood, Robert Swedroe constantly sketched buildings and landscapes which evolved to complex assemblages.
From 1964 to 1974, working full time as a senior design architect for Morris Lapidus, Robert created 500 collages, which ultimately sold in galleries and at solo shows. When he opened his own firm in 1974, he reluctantly gave up the art to totally devote himself to architecture. But he kept his early art in the public eye with a colorful hard-cover book published in 2002. This second book features 125 dazzling images reflecting the exciting, imaginative directions in his current work. The book can be purchased at Books & Books in Bal Harbour and Miami Beach and The Bookstore at the Grove in Coconut Grove. Price $29.95 + tax.
