5.18.07 Submission: Architect Magazine R+D Awards
New technologies are revolutionizing architecture processes. The R+D awards honor innovative materials and systems at every scale — from HVAC and structural systems, to curtain-wall and ceiling-panel assemblies, to discrete building materials such as wood composites and textiles.

06.01.07 Submission: Schedium
The AIA NY Chapter’s Emerging New York Architects (ENYA) invites drawing portfolio submissions as part of its new program, Schedium, intended to celebrate the drawing abilities of emerging architects. Artists selected from the portfolio competition may be asked to participate in a live drawing series. International practitioners are welcome. Eligibility is limited to those with an architecture degree or international equivalent, who have received an architecture degree after 01.01.91 or received their architectural license after 01.01.97, whichever is less restrictive. Four winners will receive a $1,000 stipend plus additional benefits.

06.01.07 Submission: Best Firm to Work For
The 2007 Best Firm to Work For Summit (October 4-5, 2007) recognizes the top architecture (and engineering firms in a separate category) based on the results of employee surveys. In addition to an awards reception, the two-day event will focus on Best Practices in AEC Firm Management, Hiring and Retention Strategies, The Physical and the Cultural Environment of the Workplace, Employee Compensation and Benefits, and The Organizational Structure of the Firm.
