SMPS: Building Your Bottom Line through Business Development
More work and more money are top priorities for today’s firms. The emerging trend for A/E/C firms is the seller-doer concept. Firm leaders have recognized that waiting for the phone to ring to get business is not a sustainable model. Research suggests that technical professionals will have increasing responsibilities for business development (BD) over the next decade. Chances are, the skills needed to develop and win work were not taught in college. This program is designed for those who are responsible for developing, managing and advocating for business development activities among their staff and leadership. If you are an aspiring leader in your organization and are looking to perfect your BD skills or develop a BD process at your firm, this program will help you get to the next level by maximizing opportunities with new and existing clients. Business Development is everyone’s business.

SAP is the training standard of the AIA Disaster Assistance Program, which provides leadership, advocacy, and training to architects who are interested in volunteering their professional skills in times of crisis. This workshop will teach participants to conduct rapid damage assessments of structures affected by earthquakes, wind, and water. Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to consistently and safely assess structures for habitability and will receive a nationally recognized Cal OES registration ID card from the state of California, as well as a Kansas Assessment Team (KAT) certification.
