This group was created to allow current and future architects of Savannah to prosper and connect with one another. It also serves as a platform for a community that should always be in contact and help one another. The path to licensure is far from easy and we as emerging professionals of AIA must utilize all of the resources available to us, the most critical one being ourselves.
