The Group formally known as Sole Practitioners started as a Self Help Group in 1986. The group meets twice each month at the Build and Design Centre, 66 Merivale Street South Brisbane (next door to the AIA Queensland Chapter Premises), from 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm to discuss Architecture and General practice topics with special emphasis and application to issues affecting sole and small architectural practices.

All Architects who are sole practitioners or who are contemplating entering into small practice are welcome to attend. This includes practitioners who are solely responsible for 3 to 4 staff and this has recently been expanded to include small practices with more than one principal and staff (up to 10 people).
