Paula Maynes was known for her mentorship, her work ethic, and her calm, collaborative nature. She was a leader statewide in the architectural community and understood the importance of supporting aspiring architects to achieve licensure.
The AIA Pennsylvania Associates Committee has identified a need to provide assistance to Associates throughout the Commonwealth, who are taking the Architect Registration Examinations (AREs). Due to the lingering impacts of the recession on the architectural, design, and construction fields, many emerging professionals are still underemployed and struggling to pay off school loans. The AIA PA Associates Committee believes it is essential for the future success of our profession to retain as many young professionals and Associates as possible and aims to facilitate their path to licensure. An important component of our commitment to emerging professionals is our initiative to provide more financial assistance to pay for the AREs. The Paula Maynes AIA Pennsylvania Grant will give seven $210 awards, the cost of each ARE exam, to eligible candidates in the form of reimbursement upon receipt of passing an ARE division. This award aims to recognize those who follow in her footsteps through their dedication to positively impacting their profession and community
