San Antonio Young Architects

AIA San Antonio Young Architects (SAYA) aim to provide ample networking, professional growth and development, and public outreach through interaction and collaboration with the community and AIA.  We promote the value of AIA membership and promote the path towards licensure through increased knowledge sharing of our Design Professionals, Young Architects and all A/E/C emerging professionals.

We act as the voice of our chapter’s youth, enriching the chapter’s longevity by providing services and outlets for future practitioners. We encourage active participation in both the community and in the workplace.

Events include organizing various study groups for ARE candidates, bi-monthly mixers, lectures, and tours.
