The Emerging Rochester Architects (ERA) is a subcommittee of AIA Rochester, and is chaired by the AIA Rochester Emerging Professionals Director.

Our membership includes associates, architects, and architectural students who have an enthusiasm for architecture, design, and Rochester. ERA is the vehicle for hosting events and programs that are fun, foster professional development, and engage the community with a focus on architecture and design. The broad nature of ERA’s framework allows the members to steer it in a direction that is their passion and will best benefit them, allowing future generations to make ERA their own.
