The Victorian Chapter manages a suite of programs to support our members and create opportunities for their professional growth. We are the voice of the Institute in Victoria and we actively engage with state and local government to promote the interests of our members, the community in relation to the built environment, and the architectural profession in general.
We recognise works of our local architects through the Victorian Architecture Awards and we foster a knowledge-sharing culture through our publications and our large, medium and small practice forums.
The Victorian Chapter acknowledges the traditional owners of the site on which our office stands, the people of the Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
The Victorian Chapter operates its continuing professional development (CPD) program in Melbourne and regional Victoria. CPD events include technical presentations on materials and products from industry players, and workshops and seminars covering topics around the four areas of competency standards – design, documentation, project delivery and practice management.
We also hold two Practice of Architecture Learning Series each year with face-to-face tutorials to help members prepare for the Architectural Practice Examination and refresh core knowledge for practice.
Mentorloop is the mentoring platform which enables members to easily match with other members of the Institute community. Utilising online specialist matching software, mentors and mentees will find a carefully curated match across the country or closer to home should that be your preference.
For mentees: as you progress in your studies and career, connect with new mentors who can offer support, advice and opportunities. By using the program, you will be empowered to build your very own advisory board, whose experience you can draw on throughout the course of your career.
For mentors: this is a great chance to give back while improving your leadership and management skills by providing advice and feedback to someone who can really use your help.

Since the 1930s the Institute has been an active advocate of the responsibility of the architectural profession to contribute to the proper conservation, adaptation, re-use and ongoing management of the natural and cultural environment, and in particular, the heritage of our built environment. Factors which contribute to determining a building’s heritage significance may be based upon aesthetic, historic, social, spiritual or technical grounds.
