South Australian CHAPTER

The SA Chapter represents the interests of all its local members across the state. We promote the advancement of the profession by providing education and research programs and by engaging with local and state governments to address issues relating to the built environment.

We also work with local media outlets to promote discussion about the value of architecture in society and we foster strong industry partnerships to create more continuing education opportunities for our members.

The SA Chapter recognises the Kaurna people as the traditional custodians of the Adelaide region. We pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.

Continuing Education

SA CPD Program

The SA Chapter supports members’ formal continuing professional development (CPD) through online and face-to-face activities addressing the profession’s competency standards of design, documentation, project delivery and practice management.

We also hold local seminars and project site tours providing informal CPD points, and we run local Practice of Architecture Learning Series (PALS) programs. Scheduled to run in the lead up to the Architectural Practice Exams and facilitated by practicing architects and local experts, PALS is designed to help graduates preparing for registration as well as architects returning to the workforce.

 

MENTORING

Changes are being implemented for the Mentor Scheme in 2020. We look forward to announcing details soon.
