Recent Opportunities


AIA Chicago transFORM Leadership Program

Co-sponsored and powered by the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses (GS10KSB) Chicago program, and in partnership with Harold Washington College, this collaboration will bring award-winning faculty to the fingertips of AIA Chicago members and AEC professionals. 

GS10KSB is an investment to help entrepreneurs create jobs and economic opportunity by providing greater access to education, capital and business support services. With multiple sites nationwide, GS10KSB has served over 8,000 small business owners. The program has reached businesses from all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and Washington, D.C, and has resulted in immediate and sustained business growth for the alumni of the program. 

AIA Chicago transFORM will combine the curriculum offered to GS10KSB participants with the business of architecture, and will feature speakers, panelists and educators from within the profession, providing real-world application of those business and leadership skills in an interdisciplinary setting.

AIA Chicago encourages both members and non-members to apply, at all career development stages. While GS10KSB defines a small business as one with 500 or fewer employees, this program is specifically geared toward architects at all firm sizes, small and large.

A limited number of spots are available, and we expect this program to sell out. Registration is now open.
