The Architects Advisory Service NSW® is a voluntary association whose objective is to promote the value of architects services throughout NSW. It is dedicated to the advancement of the professional capabilities of its membership.
The Architects Association NSW was incorporated in September 2016 with the founding members consisting of over 30 registered architects
Membership of the Architects Association NSW (Incorporated) is restricted to architects whose names appear on the registry of architects maintained by the NSW Architects Registration board.
The founding members of the Association are principal architects who have enjoyed years of professional experience and are attracted by the idea of giving something back. The Association is a not-for-profit entity that provides an Architects Advisory Service across NSW. Through the association's objects, members enjoy access to peer review, the return of the "long lunch", and benefits from the "economy of scale" provided by co-operation between architects. It offers support in various aspects of professional practice, as well as the sharing of ideas and strengths; and provides mutual support to identify and strengthen weaknesses.
Our goal is to make Architects Association NSW "the go to" source of architects, where the NSW public can find the right architect for their project, and where the profession can source mentees as staff members, equipped with experience and support for a mutually profitable enterprise.
Candidates for registration as an architect in NSW are invited to register their interest in becoming an Associate to participate in the Association's mentoring program. Associates should have completed their formal tertiary education and are seeking experience or guidance to satisfy the Board requirements for Registration. It is understood that some participants may have already completed many years of experience in an architect's practice, whereas others may have no employment experience in an architect's practice. Our objects are to promote opportunities that assist you toward accreditation and into the profitable practice of our profession.
Key activities of members include:
- Business development for architect practices.
- Promotional activities that engage architects in contracts with clients.
- Professional mentoring network for candidates of registration with the Board.
- Peer review, technical support, education and training for practicing architects.
- Fellowship and social activities for members and their guests.
