QLD/NT Branch Update - May 2020

29 May 2020

The QLD/NT Committee has focused on promoting the value of architects, industry engagement with representation on several committees, and a diverse program of events.

The main thrust of our activities over the past 12 months has been to promote the value of architects within the industry and to the broader community.

We have continued to conduct a diverse program of events, and engaged with the Queensland Government, Board of Architects, the Australian Institute of Architects, and educators.

Our face to face events have been converted online, giving our members and corporate partners the opportunity to continue to engage and network.

Committee members also represent the profession on various committees including an expert reference group to review the National Standards of Competencies for Architects, a workgroup in the AACA ’Pathway to Registration Project’ and, more recently, the Office of the Queensland Government Architect COVID-19 group.

The ACA National Salary Survey project has been championed by our Committee. While COVID-19 has delayed the publication of the final report, we are pleased to announce that the findings of the survey will be released in early July.
