Tasmanian CHAPTER

Our Chapter conducts several activities across the state to advance the interests of our members and the profession while also engaging the broader community of Tasmania.

Our committees organise different events such as the Tasmanian Architecture Awards and networking opportunities for graduates, promote significant 20th century buildings, and develop policies to promote sustainability in the industry.

The Tasmanian Chapter recognises the Muwinina people as traditional land owners of the site on which our office stands. We pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.

Continuing Education

Tas CPD Program

In Tasmania, the Building Act 2000 requires accredited building practitioners to undertake CPD.

The Tasmanian Chapter offers CPD events supported by the Tasmanian Government and the Board of Architects of Tasmania. We also hold a range of CPD activities including talks from distinguished architects and practices as well as livestream seminars covering various aspects of practice.

All Tasmanian-hosted CPD events are presented at the flatrate of $15.

 

MENTORING

The Tasmanian Chapter offers a formal mentoring program to Institute members. All mentors are registered architects who volunteer their time to share their knowledge and experience with those who are starting their careers in the profession.

The Mentoring Scheme runs for approximately eight months, from April to November. It is expected that mentors and mentees will meet once a month for approximately one to two hours. In addition to regular meetings, program-specific events will be organised periodically to support the program.

Participating mentors and mentees will be eligible to receive informal CPD points.
