TSA CONNECT: A professional networking and mentorship event for newcomers and emerging practitioners in the architecture and design industry!
It’s been a long time coming, but we are so excited to announce the return of in-person sessions for TSA CONNECT—our signature networking events for young professionals, emerging practitioners, and newcomers! This fall, join us in one of two sessions as featured guests from Toronto’s architecture and design community share their experiences, perspectives and advice on issues of practice, career and life.
For our first in-person session of 2022, we’re bringing the focus to a topic very near to our hearts: volunteering! Come join us for a night of networking and relationship building as our featured guests share their advice on volunteering, from what motivates them to give back to how they manage to balance work, family and volunteering obligations. And with featured guests representing a wide variety of organizations in the architecture and city-building communities, this is an amazing opportunity to get to know the many groups working to make our industry and city better for all.
So come join us for a fun evening and meet some of the amazing volunteers making a difference in our community!
