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.

Awards

community connection - the sa architecture awards 2020

This year’s South Australian Architecture Awards recognised projects that have a considerable impact on the communities they serve and demonstrate generosity toward the broader public.

Part of a national awards program run by the Australian Institute of Architects, the presentation was held virtually for the first time this year via a live YouTube stream on 2 July.

Continuing Education

CPD in SA

The Institute has become aware that companies are approaching architects with range of CPD offerings that they claim will earn the architect formal points.  We note that no organisation, including the APBSA and the Institute, endorses CPD presentations or can guarantee that attendees will be awarded formal points.  Formal CPD points will be assessed by the Board based on the records kept by the architect and whether those records demonstrate that the architect gained knowledge relating to the stated NSCA competencies. The following note provides information regarding the introduction of CPD in SA.  Information is also available from the APBSA.  In the interim, be wary of organisations offering ‘too good to be true’ CPD, including points that can be stockpiled for use in future registration years. 

 

MENTORING

The Institute recently launched its new national mentoring program, via online mentoring platform Mentorloop

Mentorloop makes mentoring easy. With quick online registration and a combination of self and recommended matching, mentors can select the mode, frequency and location of their mentoring partnership.
