What's on in WA

 

Hello from the Chapter President



 
  
The Australian Institute of Architects is a peak advocacy body for our profession and this will underscore everything that we do during my Presidency. To me, members are the heart of the Institute. I have made it a personal KPI to increase membership and in particular membership of women who currently only make up 30% of the total. Please encourage your friends to return to the fold. The bigger we are, the stronger our voice.

While many still believe that the WA Chapter is an old boys club I want to assure you that this is not so. Your Chapter comprises 11 elected members, along with the past president and representatives from the universities, graduate network and the State Government agency Building Management and Works. The gender balance is almost 50/50, with an age range of 21 – 65, from all forms of practice and academia.  

As a Chapter Council, we have agreed that the advocacy of our members to the public and government is of primary importance. We want to be agitators – the first port of call for journalists and politicians when looking for comment and most importantly formulating policy in the built environment. To do this we need to be seen in the same light as equivalent industry associations like Chamber of Commerce, Master Builders and the Property Council.

In the last month, I have been to a National Council meeting, a national strategy session and a media induction in Canberra. I was fortunate to attend a Parliamentary breakfast in Canberra where a new national policy on affordable housing was released and met with several MPs keen to engage on built environment issues.  The chapter is currently considering the policy in light of our local context and will take this to our new State Government.  

Of importance for our members is the government procurement methods.  We are looking to commission research in collaboration with ACA and other groups into the deficiencies with the current model. I encourage you to come along on 12 April to the launch of the Association of Consulting Architects’ [ACA] discussion paper on procuring architectural services. It will feature a panel of experts, including myself, exploring the issues around public procurement.  

As a small practice owner, I understand that many of our members are doing it tough so from today we are reducing the entry price of continuing professional development events.  Typical costs will now include: student $22, A+ member $33, individual member $44 and non-member $88. Hopefully this provides some relief and encourages more members to come along to presentations that will be targeted at the things that you need, for example HR in the workplace and obligations within the Fair Work Act. We are setting up a small CPD reference group to help us develop content. If you would like to take part, please email us wa@architecture.com.au.  

We are also making changes to our homepage on the website to make it easier to navigate until the national website overhaul comes to WA.  As our members we would love you to be more engaged. Please also follow us on InstagramTwitter and Facebook

Until my next report 

Best wishes

E.G. Cohen Medal

Eustace Gresley Cohen was an English born farmer and architect. He practised architecture in Bunbury and became involved with the Institute of Architects of WA. 

He always took a very keen interest in the work and progress of young people in architecture. 
It was for this reason that he established in 1924 a bronze medal to recognise students who have set themselves apart with their work, their attitude to their fellow peers and the respect they have within the profession.

Students are nominated from both The University of Western Australia and Curtin University, submitting a written submission and attend an interview.

The medal is presented at the Exhibition Opening for the WA Architecture Awards at the end of June, by the grandson of Eustace Gresley Cohen.
