First, we all hope that you are having a great start to the semester and really enjoying your classes here at Wake Tech.
We have an opportunity coming up for anyone who is interested in volunteering with the AIA Triangle Tour. We did mention a few facts about it at our first meeting; but we wanted to put a post up with a little more information for you!
This is truly a wonderful experience. A few of us second year students had the opportunity to volunteer last year with AIA Triangle. So you’re probably wondering exactly what this is? Well, the AIA Triangle Tour is on Saturday, October 8th. There are two different shifts that you can sign up to do (or you are more than welcome to volunteer for the entire day). There are 5 residences located throughout Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill. The architect of these residences are there all day, so it is a great way to start your networking early. Once you have completed your shift, your T-shirt (free T-shirt) is your ticket in to the other houses if you wish to tour those spaces.
There is also an after party at a location that will be determined soon. We should be getting that information to you shortly. If you choose to sign up, go to the AIA Triangle Tour Website and click the Volunteer link on the left-hand side of the page. When you sign-up, PLEASE be sure to use your Wake Tech e-mail address.
If you have any questions, please come see Victoria Parsons or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope to see you all there!
Our build is on FRIDAY! YAY!!!!! I am including a link to volunteer with the evening event that is open to the public and the whole thing is going to be a blast!
To be clear! This is not part of the AIAS activity! This is us supporting the AIA Triangle who helps us maintain our official chapter membership by being our sponsors. Participation in ANY part of the canstruction day is an excellent resume-building opportunity and an excellent networking opportunity!
Please help make this amazing CAN-raiser happen!

Brooke here! We need YOU to represent our organization during our Art Auction Fundraiser. It is an exciting event on February 5th that will showcase local artists and designers and the pieces will feature the fantastic beauty of architecture. The event’s goal is to raise funds for our chapter to do things throughout the year. This can include dues to AIAS National, trips, lunch & learns, CANstruction and other things that we sponsor.
What you need to do is commit to attending and “working the door” for part of the event. Your role will be to mix and mingle with the guests and educate them about Wake Tech Architecture Technology program and our AIAS chapter. Now, I don’t want anyone to be intimidated by this. You won’t be there by yourself and you are the expert about this – it’s what YOU do! Plus we will give you some talking points that you can jump to if you need to.
I have the flier below, but if anyone has questions about this, there will be a meeting soon or you can leave a comment on this post.
email@example.com – Brooke
firstname.lastname@example.org – Katelyn
