To encourage and celebrate the next generation of leaders


The 2nd Annual Emerging Leader Awards recognize members of the AEC community who demonstrate excellence, impress and inspire their co-workers, and are well on their way to becoming the next leaders in the profession. These awards recognize young professionals for excellence in design, leadership, initiative, and/or service to the community. Nominated by a member or members of their team, winners are selected by a jury of peers.
