In partnership with Wright, Constable & Skeen, the AIABaltimore Practice Management Committee is pleased to announce the launch of “The Business Side of Architecture Speaker Series,” a monthly speaker series delivered via phone, that focuses on business issues in the profession.

In this first part of our series on Continuity Planning, you will learn about strategies for how to identify, incentivize, and reward the “Next Generation” of your firm. The discussion will focus on certain key performance metrics for your professionals, the different ways to get equity into the hands of those professionals, the tax ramifications of such equity awards, and the important ingredients for your buy-sell agreement to facilitate a smooth exit for your more senior professionals and a transition of your business to the “Next Generation.”

The plan is designed to position the company and its principals to achieve their economic goals, as well as provide business continuity.
