Miami - Building Center No.3 (BC3) Principal, Jason Tapia, AIA, NCARB, CDT, LEED AP was appointed to the American Institute of Architects (AIA) National Small Firm Exchange (SFx) as the Florida Regional Representative. The appointment is a two year commitment which involves meeting twice a year in person, and bi-weekly conference calls.
The mission of the AIA Small Firm Round Table is to advance the mutual interests of architects practicing in small firms. Objectives of the AIA Small Firm Round Table are three-fold.
(1) Advocate for small firms within the AIA and in outside organizations and agencies.
(2) Promote leadership in Small Firm professional development and practice
(3) Facilitate and support the local component round tables and small firm networks.
“I am looking forward to contributing at the national level and using this opportunity to establish, with the support of the AIA Miami Chapter, a Miami Small Firm Round Table. The goals would be to build the network of small firm practitioners, encourage other architects interested in starting their own practice, and offer, through the Miami Center for Architecture and Design, periodic learning seminars to assist practitioners with the successful management of their firms.”
