     It is my first time attending CYA. It was very instructive with valuable information. The people I met today was very helpfull and knowledgeable. I can wait for the next event. I totally enjoyed the experience.

     in my hurry I didn't see that I needed to RSVP to the YPC directly (rather than just this event on meetup) This caused some confusion at the door since I wasn't on the list. looking back at the page, there certainly was big bold text saying I needed to RSVP separately. Luckily, the YPC were able to sneak me into a spot for someone else who didn't show up.

     The YAF is an informal group of design professionals interested in architecture. Our events are a nice opportunity to network with other creative people living and working in Chicago.

     As with anything, the more you put in, the more you get out. YAF consistently puts in 100%, and the rewards are immeasurable.

     A wonderful group. It provides connections that I have found hard to establish in our current economy.

     Excellent! 

    Ms n. on Apr 11, 2011.

  • Chicago Young Architects Forum

     Excellent idea! There are many forums out there for virtually all topics and this one proves to be yet another great one! It always helps sharing ideas and similar interests with your peers. Without groups like this, the profession and practice in general would not survive. I strongly believe that these types of get togethers and people are what the industry is about; exploring what it is like to think "outside the box" and express their creativity thru design. Architecture, in many ways, is an art form, and exploring that art thru "the forum" is wonderful!

  • Chicago Young Architects Forum

     A talented group of Architects that are very active in the community. 

    Bill G. on Dec 10, 2010.

  • Chicago Young Architects Forum

     It is great that most YAF meet ups encourage people to come out and learn about current things going on in architecture in a relaxed social atmosphere. 

    Angel V. on Jul 28, 2010.

  • Chicago Young Architects Forum

     It is a great way to meet people from the same industry, to network and to stay inspired by others - by variety of approaches to the Design subject. 

    Eliza on Jul 7, 2010.

  • Chicago Young Architects Forum

     It's an open opportunity to discuss architecture, urban design, and the future of design-related fields.

     If it helps you prepare for the ARE at a minimal cost, why not?
