Update - October 2020
In line with MoA’s mission to help architects be more entrepreneurial, we are developing a special Online Edition of the MoA Directors that specifically focuses on the current situation and challenges in running businesses due to the market disruption.
The new programming in 2021 will focus on different aspects of Business Development
The Original MoA Directors is an annual membership programme that offers the rare opportunity for directors of small and medium-sized practices to share knowledge about how they run their businesses and tackle industry issues and opportunities.
Originally launched in 2017, the MoA Directors membership offers studio-visit discussions among directors and a guest moderator. The sessions are in an informal social environment and held in a different practice each time, where directors can gain valuable insights from business experts and peers. The membership also includes access to 3 MoA Business Academy workshops of your choice.
• Sharing knowledge among directors on how their practices are run
• Sharing knowledge about key topics that will push the industry forward
• Creating action groups to implement strategies on key areas of interest
• Communicating the knowledge with the broader built environment community through
The MoA Directors meetings are for Directors only
The MoA Business Academy and Public Programming are open to everyone in the practice
Membership for the Original MoA Directors
£400 + VAT per year per practice (overall value of over £525 of training including workshops and lectures)

During this MoA Directors' session, Sue will explain the importance of a Business plan and how to go about creating a plan or strategy which resonates with your personal and professional goals.
Sue will also explore ways to overcome the challenges which can get in the way of achieving your goals.
