Coronavirus Update/ Returning to the Office: AEI's is in the process of preparing our office for staff to return on a modified schedule, providing the City of Boston re-opening guidelines continue to move forward. During quarantine, AEI's staff have successfully worked remotely. Every staff member is equipped with the same equipment at home as they have in the office to ensure efficiency and seamless transitions between workstations. We will continue to work remotely and will provide a formal reopening date when it's available. At this time, only staff will be allowed in our space. Our contact information and policies on in person meetings and site visits remain the same as they have since early March. Please feel free to contact us if you have questions.

Involvement

Endemic to our culture, participation in professional organizations is highly encouraged for its incalculable benefits to personal and professional development. We actively communicate upcoming networking events and encourage staff to become members of organizations that spark an interest and contribute to their professional growth. Whenever possible, we ask employees to join a committee and to get involved. The benefits far outweigh the time out of the office.
 
Leading by example, each AEI principal demonstrates a commitment to the industry by serving in a leadership role in professional organizations.
