Fee Structure for Intern Architects sign now

Dear fellow OAA interns,

The OAA recently sent out notices of the annual fee renewal, accompanied by a letter addressed to intern architects. It announces a drastic change in the fee structure for intern architects, charging extra to those whose time in the intern process exceeds five years. It states that the fees for these interns would increase from $145 to $350 in 2009, and increase again in 2010 to $784, in order to match the fees charged to licensed architects.

A 541\% increase over a two year period is an amendment we should not accept.

The OAA seems to anticipate that increasing intern fees will provoke unmotivated interns into becoming licensed architects. This action is ambiguous as the Association is not imposing a firm time limit on the process, yet is penalizing those who have exceeded one.

The OAA has given much attention to the current state of interns in the profession, and is anticipating changes to the Intern Architect Program over the next few years. A survey carried out in 2008 by the Committee on the Future of the Profession/Interns identified a number of issues for consideration (see www.internarchitects.com). Presently, the only action being taken is the fee increase.

Furthermore, interns are not entitled to vote in the OAA or participate in dialogues that may have a direct impact on their future as architects.

The petition is asking for your support for the following two items:

Implement reasonable fee restructuring that is responsive to changes in the program and intern privileges and responsibilities.

Establish an intern representative on the OAA council.

We look forward to a productive dialogue between the OAA, licensed members, and ourselves regarding issues affecting interns.
