Now in its second year, CLP continues its mission to cultivate a class of emerging architecture professionals into civic leaders. Supporting the need for active engagement, CLP focuses on developing skills for designers who aim to operate in public service, as well as architects who may one day consider a career in elected office. Through the program, participants will learn how to advocate for issues pertaining to the profession and the communities in which they live and work.
The 2018 program will kick off with a full-day event for this year’s class on Saturday, June 9 at the Center for Architecture and will consist of five participant-driven development sessions, four team-building sessions, and two public events that build a framework for engaging in the public realm. Each development session will include a supplemental training or information seminar led by advisers. Session topics may include public interest design, land use and public space, community engagement and relations, public development and infrastructure, and sustainability and resilience. Participants will earn 32 CEUs during the course of the program.
